Our Price: £0.00

SOLD

c.3rd Century A.D. A decent redware terracotta segment from a Roman Villa's Hypocaust Flue, found some years back, north of Ipswich, Suffolk on a known Roman habitation site. Hypocausts were elongate terracotta box shaped flues which ran within the walls of a Roman Villa conveying warm air from a sub-terranean furnace, heating the walls. The face of hypocaust flues were ribbed so that the decorative wall plaster would adhere well to it . A decent and affordable example, 113mm wide x 85mm deep x 19mm thick.
