Lands of Antiquity
Ruins and Menhirs
The lands around haven are dotted with ancient ruins. Most of these amount to nothing more than low walls or a vine covered arch. But in some cases, far more extensive works have been found. Those made of whitestone are in very good repair, the best example of this being the harbor wall, sewers, and ringroad in Haven.
The village of Appleberry has an ancient well at it’s center. Indeed, the cool water of the well, and the flatness of the surrounding lands were what convinced the farming families to settle there. There are a few bits of walls nearby, and quite a few tall menhirs scattered around the landscape. Many farmers have used the resilant stonework as part of barns or houses. William Oakstave built his house withing an old circle of standing stones he found in an ancient orchard. The upright stones bracing the wattle and daub walls and conical roof.
