Default Old bread oven in Corsica (Bozio village)

My great grand parents built a house in Corsica in 1906.
They had a little convenient store in the village and outside in the shed they had a big bread oven.
When I was a kid I saw my grand father use it to burn papers and cardboard packaging.
A couple of years ago, the dome collapsed.
We started removing the firebricks. Some of the bonding material was still attached to the brick. It came off easily with a trowel. It felt like it was dried mud, very crumbly.
The width of the oven was approximately 8 feet, and the height could have been around 30in.
I took some pictures of what's left.
I plan to build a 42" pompeii when I get a chance.
Ultimately I would have liked to rebuild the original oven just the way it was, but I don't think cooking pizzas in a 8 feet oven is practical.
I will post pictures of another oven still intact in another thread.

What are the 4th and 5th pictures for? Could you tell what insulation they used?

Pic 4 and 5 is the view of the bricks from
The entrance of the oven.
As far as insulation they were using soil.

Very cool old oven. Can you imagine how much wood it would have taken to get that sucker up to cooking temp.
