#Fridayfiveminutemap - Same world, different era!
Folchir's Fort.jpg

While I was looking up maps, I encountered the premise of "friday 5-minute maps." And, while nobody had been active on any of the tags in a while, I thought it looked fun.

So here's my first idea: Folchir's Fort.

This stands (loosely) where on my big map project there is a red star - 'cept it's been long enough (approx 1500-2000 years ago) that the river has moved. The bigger houses are meant to be almost longhouse style: communal big buildings thrown up quickly, because shelter was needed.

(I gotta say, some of the maps in the Google Plus community are amazing for 5 minutes!)

Now taking suggestions for the next few fridays worth of maps.

A hilltop town, possibly one that's been razed and rebuilt a few times.

I keep reading this as a comment on Folchir's, rather than a suggestion for another map :-)

Huh, I was expecting that the river moving, plus the shape of the river, meant that this was in a quite flat area, and the river had cut off the meander the fort was next to.

No, you're right. That's why I keep being confused.
