Norman Lords made Anglo-Saxon peasants build their churches. The peasants didn’t have the skill to cut fine-fitting bricks, instead they built two rough walls side by side with big stone blocks, and they filled the gap in between with rubble. So the walls are thick, and they look strong, but actually they aren’t – they’re just full of rubble! But it worked. These churches are a thousand years old, and they haven’t fallen down yet.
