Farwerck draws comparisons between the “oblong square” form of a lodgeroom and remains of temples in Iceland. There was also such a temple in a much more enticing location, Yeavering, a part of nowadays United Kingdom. Yeaving lays in a part that was ruled by king Æthelstan who is mentioned in the “Old Charges”, the ‘pre-masonic Masonic writings’. Interesting!

Here you can see a layout of the Yeavering temple. There is also an interesting remark: “Did the three wooden posts at the southern end support images of pagan deities or Christian icons?”
Like in the temple of Uppsala?
Or like the Lesser Lights in the Masonic temple…?
