i kinda want to do a thread on hakka walled villages cause They're The Shit but whenever i try to sequence more than four words together my brain starts turning to sludge so just go look them up and then pretend i told you about them ok, they're really fucking cool

there's more info on them in the image captions but suffice it to say i unironically believe we should start building more of these, they're effectively communal castles

@DeltaFlood Lovely, yes. But also desperate defences stimulated by ceaseless internecine warfare in the SE back in the day. Hakka folks were (are) a despised minority and often harried.

@DeltaFlood yeah, those are cool

historically done for defence, I guess?

@DeltaFlood Imagine putting, like, communal kitchens / dining area in the middle of the circles.
