It's a well, it's a pit for wine fermentation, it's where servants who don't shower are thrown, it's a place to chill when it's too hot outside. I give up.

A tunnel to somewhere?

Wow, this is a stumper. Is it some sort of really big oven or smoking pit?

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Hmmm...is it some sort of heating system, like a monster fireplace?

lotusgirl said...

Nope. More good guesses though.

I'm going for a laundry chute. Okay, it's totally not that but I still wish I had one.

Um, uh. A jail for naughty children? Or a time-out place for mommies?
