post mill
Explanation:
Tak mi wynika z porównania opisu kozlaka zamieszczonego w: www.tpu.uniejow.pl/wiatraki.html
z opisem z Britanniki:
The earliest form of vertical mill is known as the post mill. It has a boxlike body containing the gearing, millstones, and machinery and carrying the sails. It is mounted on a well-supported wooden post socketed into a horizontal beam on the level of the second floor of the mill body. On this it can be turned sothat the sails can be faced into the wind.
