Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Neolithic and Ancient Roman Fire Methods. The first part uses Pyrite and Flint--two rocks--to start a fire.

Not bad but you could also just have a longer pot hanger chain and wrap the extra length around the saplings.

Here Blackie gives a good trick for using fatwood for wet conditions. Actually, two. The second is how to make a "match" for transferring fire.

I think that I would utilize a log that I was going to use for fuel instead of a stump, but the idea is the same.
He might have done that for demonstration purposes.

I’d say the stump was for clarity...it gave nice contrast to make what he was doing visible. I’m glad he admitted you can buy fatwood at stores nowadays, or I’d be calling him out on using that store-bought fatwood in his video here!

Interesting notion, using a curl of it to transfer fire. I typically only need to transfer fire from my cook fire to a tobacco pipe and I wouldn’t want sap dripping into the bowl, but it’s not a bad concept all the same.

Dave Canterbury has an interesting bushcraft YouTube channel. In this video, he talks about some firemaking tricks he says he picked up at a bushcraft gathering in Italy. Now, I'm always interested in how bushcraft in Europe might differ from that which we learn and practice in North America. He's showing how steel and pyrite (without flint) can strike a spark for a fire. It stands to reason, since the name "pyrite" comes from the ancient Greek. Now the word first was heard in the Bronze Age, in which steel for firemaking wasn't commonly available. But Pliny the Elder (well into the Iron Age) speaks of pyrite for striking against iron or other stones to make fire. Enjoy.

Below is a video of Blackie talking about how to find fatwood. It will be helpful for the new Rangers and a good review for the veterans:
