Primitive Torches

To make a primitive torch you will need something to carry the fuel.. the torch as well as the fuel itself. That could be pitch, animal fat etc. There are a number of different torches you can build and sometimes components will in one could be common in another. Below you will find a list of links that you can choose from to learn how to make a primitive torch.

Different areas have different resources. So if you are in an area without conifers (pine trees) then a pine pitch torch is not of use. So becoming familiar with your local resources is critical.
