Title:Fireplaces, Stoves and Chimneys
URL:http://www.buildingconservation.com/articles/fireplaces/fireplaces.htm
Category:Fixtures and furnishings: Domestic and general furniture and fittings: Fireplaces
Description:Fireplaces and their chimneys may reveal a great deal about historic houses; they can show how buildings were used and how they have changed and developed over time. They can also be some of the most striking and architecturally important elements of a house, because new technologies and, more often, the dictates of changing tastes, were reflected in radical changes to fire surrounds. However, the stylistic development of fireplaces has been well described elsewhere. This article focuses on the development of fire provision in domestic houses and details how evidence of earlier examples may survive in the archaeological record.
