Ideally, house roofs would be made by usual stone or concrete carvings to top of beautifully constructed houses anywhere in the world. But in Britain, thatching roofs through the use of straw of grasses has been noticeable and have actually been an attraction to it, a practice that dates back to the Bronze Ages of the English nation.
Thatched roofs would usually represent the poor and peasant population for most countries where it is used. However, in Britain, this is entirely different. Outside that of classy and preserved cultural traditions, they hold a more lightweight type of constructing homes.
The use of thatches was evident during the primary ages. Life was not as advanced in the early ages and the main focus was to make do with whatever materials they could see and was available. Some people considered it a sign of poverty, but today, they are classic examples of preserving traditions due to their rare appearance in English regions today.
