In northern England, south of the village of Bridekirk, a skeleton from Roman times was found in 2017, with numerous coins, fragments of ceramics, furnace foundations and pieces of highly specialized Roman heating tiles that were laid under the floor to allow heating of the room through the hypocaustum system.
The researchers concluded that the male skeleton is dated to the 2nd-3rd century AD. At the time of his death he was 35-40 years old and probably died of natural causes. This place probably produced mass tiles for surrounding towns and the Roman fort Papcastle. This type of product was eagerly bought by wealthy residents who wanted, among others, to have private baths or have a heated floor.
