Iron Age Roundhouse, Chiltern Open Air Museum
Iron Age Roundhouse, Chiltern Open Air Museum
The replica Iron Age roundhouse was constructed in the 1990s. It has been furnished for the period 50 AD during the Roman occupation of Britain.

The thatched roof weighs two tons and is supported by wooden rafters. There is no chimney. The smoke from the hearth filters through the thatch, leaving a tarry deposit which helps preserve the roof.
