Your dungeon is probably Reformation. "In Europe as the wealthy embraced multiple rooms initially the common form was the enfilade, with rooms directly connecting to each other. In 1597 John Thorpe is the first recorded architect to replace multiple connected rooms with a rooms along a corridor each accessed by a separate door." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hall

ironic, given the general love of Great Halls

In a similar vein, after seeing some very old monasteries and churches in Armenia and Georgia, I have decided that all floor-Lana are moot: each floor is one room. The cellar is one room. The prison is a cell (probably a hole in the ground).

btw Marc Girouard’s _Life in the english country house_ is a joy to read on this topic.
