Lower Town Long Houses - White Stone City
Updated: 4th Oct 2013 at 4:28 PM
Their's is the poorest district of Camelot. The ones closest to the water. Closest to the walls. First to flood, first to bear the brunt of any attack. Last to reach the safety of the citadel in times of strife, if they make it there at all before the gates are closed!
Inspired by the scenes of 'Lower Town' from the BBC TV Series Merlin and the archaeological remains and artistic impressions of Viking York (England).
As such, these houses all follow a similar layout.
They all have a long fenced yard, at the end of which is the 'bathroom' (fenced in area with a hole in the ground - I've been nice, I've given you a chamber pot!)
All water supplies, washing, bathing and storage of non-perishables would happen in the 'yard'. Living quarters would be in one room or possibly two if the family could afford to extend upwards, or have the room to extend sideways. Privacy was a luxury the inhabitants of these houses could ill afford. Doors were also rare, an expensive waste of wood. Because EA demands a 'Door' as the main entrance to the house, these lots have front doors, but all other doors are arches.
The only exception to this is the Smithy. As likely the only educated person in the community and the only one to own his property, the Blacksmith stood in an elevated position compared to his neighbours, and his property would reflect that.
The smithy has floorboards, a separate stone built core building, a larger yard and both internal and external doors.
