Plant material like threshing remains has been used systematically as filling and insulation material in buildings for a long time. Such plant material can be found in several places, for example in floor cavities (internal floor deposits, Fehlboden) or in beam holes. For the first time in Switzerland, desiccated plant material like this has been investigated.
