Early medieval ridge tent

Price from 919,- £


 Geteld shaped tents are found on the oldest available tent images, the C9th Utrecht Psalter and the C12th Eadwine Psalter.

The entrance can be either in the apse or in the middle of the side wall (the latter is standard).

The unusual height of this ridge tent may be either to increase headroom inside the tent or increase the visual impact.
