The group of Viking Buildings consists of an intricate arrangement of thirteen compartments with passages and small courts covering an area of approx 100ft square. The walls area an average height of about 2ft and vary considerably in thickness. The compartments range in size from 12ft x 11ft to 25ft x 12ft and were presumably covered with thatched roofs.
