"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
24 September 2009
Interesting photo found in the very interesting Flickr photostream of Tina Manthorpe. Described as follows: "Saxon pieces let into the tower at Harmston, possibly originally little wind-eyes."
vindauga (="wind-eye") is part of the etymology of "window." I don't have time to trace this further this morning. I wonder what functional purpose the little holes served. They seem to be too small for arrow-slits. Just for ventilation? For viewing the countryside?
