      Ye Olde Viking farm house or 'Long House'
      The above is a shorter version of the ancient 'long house' which were of this style, often with thatched roofs.  Notice the 'V' at apex of house. Guess who lived in ancient Japan? 
      These ancient Danes (Danaans/Vikings) also built the same style houses everywhere they landed and settled.  Many of their houses were built on pylons several feet above the ground or tide levels.  The long houses were considered traditional farm homes, along with the round houses which also had thatched or wooden roofs.  :-)  Kat
