Thanks for the news, beansidhe

Put another way - what confidence do you have in the artistic rendering?
Lots, is the short answer.
They've excavated the foundations for the buildings and have a good idea of the sizes. As for construction, similar houses are found (as Yorkshire

It looks like a fairly bleak representation, but when you fill in the plants and grass, the people and animals, the lanes between the houses etc, my
guess is it's fairly accurate. Thanks for dropping by.
