Period House in East Suffolk, England. Built in the late 1400s.  You can still see inside the walls the wooden beams from the half-timber (or timber framing) method of building! So cool!
To create framed structures, early carpenters used heavy timber jointed together with various joint methods. They filled the spaces between the timbers with wattle and daub (mud or animal dung that fills woven branches or slats), loam (sand, silt and clay mixture), bricks or rubble.

Vivien Leigh as “Cleopatra” in the film Caesar and Cleopatra (1945). During filming, Leigh discovered she was pregnant. Soon after the big news she suffered a miscarriage, which might’ve been due to treatments for a recent case of tuberculosis in her left lung. Already suffering from uncontrollable violent outbursts and great stress from an unknown mental condition everyone preferred to ignore (mental problems that plagued women were viewed as taboo and shameful), Leigh spiraled into depression after the loss.
