Hamlets are sites built by humans, comparable to the dwarven hillock and goblin dark pit. Like Towns, the actual buildings of a hamlet are surrounded by large fields growing local crops, and divided by dirt roads. In the world map, æ and Æ indicate hamlets in highlands and = and indicate hamlets in flat plains. If they are situated on a river or stream, they are indicated with the colors blue (Æ) and cyan (Æ), respectively. Brown hamlets (Æ) mean they have been abandoned or ruined, though they don't display this if they are on a river/stream.

Hamlets mainly only have houses and the occasional well. However, nearly every hamlet that isn't too young will have an associated mead hall housing the local lord and guards, built separately from the other buildings.
