For a train to run smoothly the railway must be flat and level. This neccassitated the building of embankments, the cutting of hills and the tunneling of mountians. In the victorian period this was accomplished by roving camps of navvies working in the wilderness with a few basic hand tools and a lot of explosives. In the navvy camp I teach the correct use of the explosives and tools used to cut, blast and tunnel through the british countryside and show how the navvies lived out in the wild.
