Moot hall

Moot hall

A moot hall is meeting or assembly building, traditionally to decide local issues.

In Anglo-Saxon England, a low ring-shaped earthwork served as a Moot hill or moot mound, where the elders of the hundred would meet to decide on issues. Some of these acquired permanent buildings, known as moot halls. However, most moot halls are on (relatively) new sites within later settlements.
