Does anyone know where iron pyrites can be found naturally?
I am actually a geologist but I don’t know what rocks these occur in.
I know that you can find pyritised fossils along the Jurassic coast in Dorset but don’t think I’ve found a nodule there.
one internet source mentioned you can find...
My friend and I have both done some basic survival training through true ways survival courses, was great fun and were looking to get away from the world in 2020 and camp up by the sea side with a fire and subsistence fish for 2 or three days.

Not really a bushcrafting video but rather a collection of clips from few places I visited past 4 months for your enjoyment.
Any thoughts and critics are welcome. Still learning about filming and editing.
My eldest has wanted to go fishing for a long time he's been asking for a few years, I thought it was fad he'd fall out of, however I bought a cheap fishing set to see if he'll stick with it. I've never fished nor had any interest to do so as such I have no clue what to do at all, so...
Not a lot has changed here, the tomahawk (Trade axe) is the same, so is my hunting knife & legging knife. I made myself a new stag handled friction clasp knife, I finally found the flintlock pistol that I wanted. This pistol is .70 caliber with a left hand lock, so I can carry it in my belt on...
Can anyone point me in the direction of a woodland campsite, ideally one that allows open fires in Gloucestershire.
There used to be a guy on here that ran a site like I have described, I shared a few messages with him but never got round to visiting his site.

A friend of mine has asked me for help finding something quite specific and I told him I knew just where to ask.
He is a reenactor, mainly WW2 but sometimes also Napoleonic era. He is looking for a free standing grill to put over an open fire on which to keep a kettle on the boil and cook his...
It's that time once again my friends on the Bushcraft UK forum,
Firstly, as always, I hope that this message finds you well?
Secondly, I have had my Bushbox XL for a while now and have really been able to put it through it's paces, here are my thoughts and even some tips and tricks...
Ross shows "how to" create a wooden bowl, using fire, wood and a hand tool. Modern technology is not able to provide the satisfaction of creating your own eating utensil from the wilderness of the bush.
Does anyone else here have any experience in creating utensils in this way?
We are new here...
I want to share my experience as a beginner in the world of bushcraft in case there are any 'just curious' browsers reading this forum wondering what all the fuss is about.
I have been lucky enough to live near what I, with a glorious lack of precision, like to call 'the countryside', for my...

The course was taught by Paul Kirtley, former course director at...
