Basel door height#basel #bâle #basle
The climate in Western Europe cooled between 1150 and 1460 and became very cold between 1560 and 1850. The colder weather impacted the agriculture in those days and people were shorter, as a consequence of food being less available than it is today. The average height of people reduced from 173 centimetres to 167 centimetres. That's why this door looks too small, behind my average sized body.
