Atrium with preserved compluvium (“hole” in the ceiling) and impluvium (stone rainwater tank in which water was collected and collected in a cistern). The place is located in domus called the so-called Casa del Tramezzo di Legno Insula III in Herculaneum.
In the room there is a preserved bench and wooden sliding wings, made of wood – they are said to still slide along bronze rails. The wood owes its strong black colour to charring.
