Do you ever get the feeling your house is small? Really? How ever small it feels it won't be as small as a Saxon house! They had to fit their animals, brothers, sisters, parents, granddads and grandmas in one room! You would also be sleeping on hay bales. There would be no light source at night (well not a big one!). It would get a bit smoky during the day because there was a fire in the middle of the room and only a small hole in the roof for the smoke to get out. There would be benches around the room on the edges, and the house would be made of mainly wood. The roof would be thatched and some houses had wattle and daub (sticks weaved together with manure in the gaps). Basically everything would be quite simple. The window was just a hole. The door would be just a wooden board with a wooden hinge. So, do you still feel your house is small?
