Pillar Hypocaust, Chedworth Roman Villa
Pillar Hypocaust, Chedworth Roman Villa
There are two kinds of hypocaust (or underfloor heating) at Chedworth. In this kind (Pillar) the pillars would have supported large slabs of stone. These slabs would then have been covered in plaster or a kind of cement, and finally perhaps would have had a mosaic finish (Cf. SP0513 : Mosaic floor, Chedworth). This Pillar Hypocaust is the more effective variety as it allows the heat to reach every part of the room. (Cf. Channel hypocaust SP0513 : Channel hypocaust, Chedworth Roman Villa)
