The dwellings you describe remind me of the brochs, stone age dwellings in northern Scotland. None have survived intact and none with roofs but many of the interior features described such as internal staircase, fireplace, chambers and storage nooks recessed into the double walled drystone windowless exterior are familiar. archeologists have yet to come up with a consistent interpretation. just another hint of the pre-historic culture we encountered in Brittany.

I hope to see some of these connections to this pre-history in Scotland!

How wonderful to read more details about your stay at Aprile. Iā€™m so glad the asini greeted you accordingly. And even more glad you had that paradise to greet you after the insanity of Bari.
