In the image above, you can see a fantastic example of what we believe to be an Early Saxon church (we are currently withholding the exact locations, but I can confirm that it is located in the Western hemisphere). As you will observe from the A5 sized copy of 'Mortlock & Roberts' placed next to it, the church really is on the tiny end of the micro-church typography. As Mr. Many Coats exclaimed,
"It's a tiddler!"
Members of The Society have been discussing possible explanations for these ancient small scale churches, and our current theories include:
- People were smaller in ancient times, so they only needed little churches to worship in
- People were poorer back then, and tiny churches would only involve a minimal cost to construct
- During the olden days roving bands and raiders would target churches. Their small size would mean that they were harder to locate
