I've read somewhere that the word adobe is  the
Spanish corruption  of the Arabic al - toub.

Which implies the Moors introduced the technique to Spain. Which begs the question, what were the Spanish using before the Moors came?

Hello everybody,

Just got back from a trip in the Algerian desert (watching adobe
(locally called 'Toub') being covered with or replaced by cement). I'll
let you know when the pictures get on our website.
