The "Stube" and its Heating: Archaeological Evidence for a Smoke-Free Living Room between Alps and North Sea

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingBidrag til bog/antologiForskning

This paper discusses the concept of smoke-free heated living rooms between the Alps and the Norh Sea with a special focus on the tile stove. In the circum-Alpine zone, a new heating system was invented between the 8th and 11th century. It consisted of a clay cupola oven with inserted ceramic vessels and was mostly run as a "breechloader". This provided not only a comfortable living room, but also tended to create a specific ground plan for the house - with a core of the heated stube and an adjacent kitchen. The tile stove and the corresponding ground plan spread, but was also modified in the area between the Upper German speaking region and Southern Scandinavia until the 16th century
