This reconstruction of a medieval flint cottage
is based on archaeological evidence obtained from the deserted village of Hangleton and enables children to imagine life in 13th century when many families would have had this sort of cottage as their home. The people who lived in this type of dwelling were not very poor. They were farmers who owned a small amount of land and you will see tools and the simple furniture they had. The poor lived in simple wooden shacks.

Suggested Topics

A small, thatched dwelling which immediately puts me in mind of Hobbits and other mythical creatures. A good starting point for an adventure story for fairytale/legendů an adventure story to entertain and enthral and to escape from reality.
