28S-DAR-106  NORSE HOVEL/WORKSHOP

In Norse communities this kind of larger ‘A’ framed building was typical of craft workshops and larger outhouses.  In a Norse ‘Hafn’ (harbour/port trading town) this type of building would house the workshops of craftsmen who might themselves live in dwellings close by.  Though for a lesser ‘Bondi’ (free born oath giver), this could just as likely be both family home and a place of work. 

A prosperous ‘Kaupamadr’ (buyer and seller) might need a building of this size as a store room close to his merchant house/shop.  The wooden track-way streets of a ‘Hafn’, especially the lesser side streets, could have buildings like this interspersed with smaller huts along most of their  length.

A Freed ‘Fostre Thrall’ (hereditary slave) was a ‘Leysingi’ (Freedman), they were still at the beckon call of their former master’s household (it took two generations as ‘Leysingi’ before their oath had value and they could be considered a lesser ‘Bondi).  ‘Leysingi’ families often lived in hovels like this, usually the hovel was still owned by their former master’s family and though their working lives could be hard, usually working for their old master, they were not ‘Fostre’ and their grandchildren would be ‘Bondi’.
