“Primitive Technology” is the Best Thing on YouTube

What this guy makes with his bare hands is remarkable.

About a month ago, a new channel “Primitive Technology” popped up on YouTube. And it’s the best. As the creator notes, the videos on this channel are about “making primitive huts and tools from scratch using only natural materials in the wild.” The videos are without narration and the results are striking. It’s the kind of stuff that puts Bear Grylls to shame. Watch below as this guy, who I can only assume could woo away anybody’s girlfriend if he so desired, builds an impressive shelter. The videos are satisfyingly relaxing to watch and provide a glimpse into what the creative life may have been for our distant ancestors.
