  1. The houses in olden times were not like what we have now. They were built of stones and they had no lime between the stones.
    They were thatched with rushes. The floors were made of big stones called flags and sometimes of earth or clay.
    Some of the old houses had only one room and some of them had two. They had half doors and very small windows in them. The fire was at the end of the house and the beds were in a corner of the kitchen..
