Reorganise article by geography?[edit]

The current arrangement doesn't seem to be working too well and doesn't accommodate new information from different countries well or details of the modern resurgence in roundhouse construction using new techniques. It may be more appropriate to arrange the article by country so that more details can be added for different parts of the world. The different designs to suit different climates and local resources may then become clearer.PeterEastern (talk) 04:49, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Done, although this article could do with some input from people who know more about the subject. PeterEastern (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 08:42, 28 April 2009 (UTC).

Roundhouse (disambiguation)[edit]

States Roundhouse (dwelling), an Iron Age dwelling which is an article that would interest me and to which I would contribute. However the article has now been rearranged and while the intro states originally built in western Europe now seems to include of any round house as opposed to Squarehouse. A minor gripe I raised here is the use of the term British Isles which has proved increasingly irksome to the Irish. ref These islands Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable (17th ed)ref. The current examples only include Britain although MBM has kindly provided us with an Irish example so that the section could be extended to Britain and Ireland.
