A Stone Age Sauna

Frame of a sauna

The pictures are of a reconstruction of a stone-age sauna, re-built according to archeological findings.

The method of bathing in a sauna, such as pictured here, was presumably the following:

– A wooden frame was made to a size of taking in a couple of people.

– The frame was then covered with animal hides to keep in the hot steam.

– Stones were then heated up gleaming hot in a fire outside this ‘sauna’, after which they were placed inside this tent and only then could the bathing have begun.
