... i think
i like your idea DieChecker, the holes are the perfect size for souls or spirits to come and go. ... but , then again, small animals too.. that fact makes me doubt they would be used as tombs ?
I dont think it was tomb. Im sure that was a shelter or storage. Would you rather live in your house or burry dead there and go live outside? Could be but I dont think its very possible. I was thinking that would be usefull as prison, punishment at first
Surely the local people could build wooden homes and/or stone wall homes.
For "little people" even living in a cave would be better. These stone homes for little people would draw big people. Rather then protecting the little people, they would help wipe them out.
Could be prisons, but they would again be very hard/expensive prisons to make.
