Viking long house with a stone-lined hearth in the middle. A fire was kept for cooking and heating and the smoke escaped through a hole in the roof. The hall was often smoky and smelly. The floor of the hall was made of hard-packed earth, covered with reeds or straw. There were long, wooden platforms along each side of the hall against the walls where people slept at night, using pillows and quilts filled with feathers or down, and blanket and furs to keep them warm.

Cutaway picture of a Viking house...the door is in the wrong place, for a typical Viking longhouse the door should be off center on one of the long walls.

Another fantastic room. Looks like an upside-down viking ship.

Viking tent/house. So this is the entryway to an underground house, maybe? I don't like the idea of a completely underground place, though. It'd be so dark.
