Abstract (in English)

The tar pit is a shallow funnel-shaped deepening with bottom of clay hardened with tar. It is loaded with pitchy pieces of pine, either trunks barked for years, or stumps. The pit is covered with earth, set in fire and burnt slowly up to two weeks until tar turns out of wood and only some charcoal is left.
