WHAT IS SERANDER?
Serander is a corn (grain) warehouse, made by completely wood which does locate side of each house, particularly villages of Easthern Black Sea. The size is about 4×4 meter that it’s standing at the top of poles. The pole’s number changes from 4 to 6 or 8, according to the size of Serander. The diameter of 50 cm “wheels” located at the top of the poles which is a height of 180 cm. So this “wheel” prevents the Mouse and insects to get into Serander which does climb to the poles very easily. The air circulation through windows made of spaced strips of Serander, does provide the corn (grain) to remain dry. Seranders usually were built by chesnut tree with the technique of interlaced at the corners, without using metal nails, that’s why, it has been remaining solid for hundred years. The word of Serander means according to the original language of BlackSea Greek is ( See Turkish Language Magazine, number 630 ) Kseros = dry, Andiro= drying place. ( Kseranter = Hseranter = Serander ). Today in Modern Greek name is Ksirantirion.
