Description
Ancient Winterhold makes Winterhold's history as the capital of Skyrim more believable, by replacing the original wooden huts with stone buildings and adding a derelict wall. The ruins are also replaced. Unlike the mod The Great City of Winterhold, this mod does not expand Winterhold (aside for two half-buried buildings sunken in the snow on the edge of the town), and unlike JK's Winterhold, this mod changes the architecture of the buildings in Winterhold. Ancient Winterhold just changes the buildings both inside-and out to more fitting architecture. Due to this, I also renamed the now-stone 'Jarl's Longhouse' to 'Shalidor's Hall'.

Update - Frozen Hearth Update
This update changes the interior of the Frozen Hearth to fit the aesthetic of the exterior of the town. Some other details outside of the inn are changed as well, such as the well being replaced by a stone pillar, some fences are now gone, and some roads have been replaced.

Update - Ancient Winterhold Version 3
Navmesh has been updated to ensure that the doors work properly. Some fences have been removed to allow for better NPC navigation. Certain ground textures have been adjusted. The back roads have been covered in snow to be more realistic and some minor positioning adjustments have been made.  The rent-a-room function has been sort-of fixed. A new book has been added - The Corrupt City in Kraldar's house.

WARNING: THE QUEST MARKERS IN THE FROZEN HEARTH ARE INACCURATE - WYLANDRIAH'S INGOT IS IN A SATCHEL ON THE TABLE, AND THE CELLAR DOOR IS IN THE CORNER BEHIND THE BAR.

THIS MOD IS STILL ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES. IF ANYONE COULD HELP TO POLISH IT UP, THAT WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
