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

yurt heaven


i have a fixation on yurts and the other day while i was surfing the net i went looking on google earth for some , i knew that the Mongolians use them as their main form of abode .. so i started at the capital and followed the roads out untill i came to a place called Dalanzadgad .. almost all of the town were yurts  , the satellite photos were not that good but you could see how many there were.. this was the only photo that showed the yurts at ground level
