Forum baths caldarium concameratio



The hot rooms like the caldarium were heated. To do this they had hollow floors and walls (concameratio). Nearby was the furnace (praefurnium). From here the hot air and smoke was lead under the floor (hypocaustum) and from there through the hollow walls that functioned as a chimney.
