They say that it is 5,000 years old…

and that it is remarkable because of how it is built…

but no one is saying what type of joinery or fasteners were used..

It looks like some type of weaving of the wooden joints was used. I have also read that it appears to have been very air tight because of its ingenious design…was it a common design I wonder? I am also curious as to which type (s) of wood was used.

well one thing is obvious…its got wooden slats that goes across that are woven in and out..i wonder if there is some type of tongue and groove in between the boards..i think this door was taken from an area where extream cold and wind were present, and the door needed to block those elements out…pretty cool to see some of the earliest wood work in the world..

Well, my daughter is an aspiring archeologist. She has gone to several countries digging up stuff. Maybe I’ll get her to take a look. :)

She once dug up a dead dog as a project. A friend of hers told her that he came home and found the dog lying next to his house where he had been left after being run over. He felt sorry for the dog so he buried the dog in his back yard as an act of kindness. The dog had been buried for two or three years. My daughter does an extra credit investigation and goes and digs the dog up and did a complete forensic archeological report on the dog. It was quite interesting really. She almost rebuilt the entire skeleton of the dog and carefully noted all of the injuries. Now, if you were to take a look at my lovely daughter, Laura, you would never know that she got a kick out of digging up a dead dog. Hey, what can I say folks? She’s pretty good at what she does. Her major was psychology, anthropology, and archeology. Hey, what do I know? Maybe she knows something about dead doors as well. :)

Looks like they carved out a groove for the horizontal slats in green half logs then flattened them out to make the door less heavy.

Does anyone have dimensions?

Sorry, Abbott, I didn’t mean to change the subject. All of that just sort of popped out of my mouth.

Abbott, I know you don’t. No telling what this thread will be about after it’s all over with. Before you know it we’ll be diggin’ up poor old F*rticus.
