It looks like a Hobbit's house! (But without door or windows, of course)

Thanks Frankloh for your comment. Well, you know, when you are on-site, this idea doesn't cross your mind. The place is really awesome. I know Jackson's movie has popularized pictures of grass roofed hobbit-holes, but Tolkien actually lived in the Cotswolds, and I fancy that hobbits villages may have looked more like Bibury than like Bru-na-Boine.

Hobbit's home?I like this green scene. Greetings from China

Hello Xiahanhuang Certanly not hobbit homes, but very ancient common graves, 5000 years old and more. These huge monuments were so ancient that the Celts (2000 years ago) believed these were home of Elves.
