The Longhouse

This is our longhouse. This is where we all live.

It has only got one room. We are lucky as there are many trees nearby so we were able to build the walls from wood.  We covered the roof with turf to keep the heat in in winter.

Around the walls are the benches where we sit or sleep. We cover them with skins or fur. We can't afford to have beds.

The fire in the middle keeps us warm and at night gives us light. There's a hole in the roof to let out the smoke.

It will soon be Saturday!!
