A fireplace was place in a home where wood or other materials can be burned. It is used for heat as well as cooking food.


Most homes had at least one fireplace of some sort, though were dangerous in almost all houses but castles due to the risk of fire.

In the homes of nobles and other people of wealth, there were often several fireplaces along the sides of their dining hall. This way, the host and his guest of honor could warm themselves at one fire, the servants and slaves at another, etc.
