The hall

The hall was centrally located in the village. The clues left on the map of Arenberg inspire a hall of large surface with predominant roof in the architecture (bluish on the map) (Fig. 49) . These buildings looked like a large U-shaped courtyard (Fig. 51) . The central void was the public square of the time (Ref. [2]). Many halls are still standing today and we can easily imagine their configuration in the Middle Ages. Some are in an exceptional state of conservation (Milly-en-Forêt, Cremieu) and testify of all the medieval know-how (Fig. 50)

The suggested configuration is inspired by the Cremieu hall with peripheral stone walls, a completely open space and a massive frame covered with a slate roof (Fig. 50) . The location of the Hall corresponding to the Royal Athenaeum (Arsene Geubel Basic School today) and its front yard (Fig. 52) . The chapel of the village on the right was located where the town hall is located today.
