cold as bro

many years ago i was touring Scotland and i came across the crannog centre , crannogs were built over water , instantly i was hooked .. these building were in use about 2500 years ago and sites are found all over the UK…. they resemble yurts but were permanent structures ..set up on poles over water for protection from wild beasties of some sort.. the domestic herds were sometimes housed around the living area , under the roof but separated from the living area by a wall , this formed a living insulation… these are some photos of the crannog at loch tay , it was made the way they would have made them
