Into the round


Are there any engineers who would like to assist me with the reconstruction of an ancient British structure? I have recently completed an MPhil thesis on buildings with round frame structures built in Western Europe between about 2000BC and 500AD.

These timber frame structures were later 'copied' into stone. The largest were up to 150 feet diameter and up to 100 feet high and included early ribbed dome structures.
