At my village there is a church from the VI century, from the Barbarians invasions times, that is useful at last. This stork has built the nest there.

in the US of A, we don't have any really old stuff to crawl around in.  i just love going through ruins and trying to imagine what the people were like.  one thing i noticed....most of the places i've gone the people must have been much smaller!  i am 5' 8".  i knock my head on doorways smiley

glad the stork still has a use for the old stuff!

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

When my family moved to live in an old house of my grand mother, built 250 years ago, my head could feel the "weight of the History". Being the man the single animal that repeat the mistakes, I memorized every lintel with many coscorrons. grin

But the windows and doors size along the architecture history is caused by the technology, not by the human stature. Finishing the Roman Empire buildings had few and small windows, and headache doors, it was the romanic stile, Europe forgot the technology used during the Empire. Finishing the medieval era came the gothic, something better, and would be superated by the Neoclassic, with light and colour.

In Spain, in eternal decadency since Napoleon and French influence, was built the house where I killed my neurones because I did not have a helmet like buzzbee.
