Interesting fact #4
« on: January 14, 2019, 02:50:03 PM »
Following on from Intersting facts #2 and #3

Houses with straw roofs, there was nothing to stop things from falling into the house.


The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing.

As the winter wore on they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside.

A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way.

Hence: a thresh hold.
