Wood Tar is another new material and also an important one in Nordic history. People make it in tar kilns where wood is burned down under special conditions and the tar collected in barrels below a stone funnel. The rest of wood is charcoal and finds a good use as well. Tar is great to preserve wooden buildings, especially roofs and docks. Due to its properties, tar is a valued trade good and can be exported for a good price.
