|Think of coarse plaster walls, often coloured and hung with textiles for
warmth and beauty. Floors of wooden boards or tiles or beaten earth
with plaited rush matting
Ceilings with beams and
huge practical pieces of furniture like chests, trestle tables and stools, and huge beds with more chests..
The slant would have been on practicality in such a working
environment, with everything going on indoors
all at once.
