Would be interesting to know the prevailing wind direction to determine its effectiveness as a wind break for livestock or agricultural needs. Or, could have been the garage for the chariot ; )

Interesting, so I wonder what made the Romans change their rigid architectural design?

I already explained it, Time Turner. I honestly did read "Tina Turner" when I read your post. And from then on I got...uhmmm... a bit distracted by the images I had in my mind of Tina Turner. OK, and sorry if I caused this thread to derail. Those thighs.....sigh... ,
