Feast Halls

There is something about the words "Feast Hall" that rouses some long dulled sense of warmth and security, fellowship, of power and comfort; more, it conjures a community bound by iron and blood, it is the house of the fire of a band's own identity. Those walls offer a respite from the hands of violence laid out by the world at large.

The Feast Hall.

In Lyminge, Kent, England, they have unearthed the foundations of what was once a proud hall. Some 70 feet long and 30 wide it was a monster for its time. Within the post wall they found some few artifacts that harken back to the warrior culture of those that occupied it, simple echoes of a time long gone but a time we still house in our dream racked sleep.

Read about the dig.
