A long day riding, my horse is exhausted & thirsty. I come upon a large great-hall made of stone. The dis-repaired thatched roof shows that there are stone shingles or tiles beneath. This is a fortress. The few windows are made for archers, not for sunlight. This looks like a family home though, Chickens scurry under foot, the goat shit stinks & the horses and sheep run free. Dogs run around the herds & flocks fending predators.
