When the Romans
invaded in AD43-44, new innovations were introduced to the natives.
Romans would have a hypocaust – the first system of under-floor
heating - to warm the sometimes harsh winters. The floor of the
house was raised by pillars, which allowed warmth - perhaps from a
kitchen fire - to flow around them and (heat rising principle
applied) - warm the rooms above!
incredible testimony to underfloor heatings longevity is Verulamium
at St Albans. Verulamium was a Roman town for almost 400 years and
significant parts of its fabric have been preserved, including, the
underfloor heating system, mosaics and a theatre!
