Pavilion Wall Slopes: 1380-1415

In the iconographic sample of circular pavilions I looked at, the median seemed to be a slope that would add three feet to the diameter at the shoulder to get the floor diameter, if the shoulder was six feet high. Many were more or less steep: the dozen or so I sampled would add as much as 5 1/2 feet and as little as 1 1/2 feet to the diameter of a tent six feet tall at the shoulder.
