This tent is made of a high quality, impregnated cotton of 340 g/m2 grammage with antibacterial and rainproof properties.

The barn has 3 x 3 x 3 m dimensions. It consists of 5 parts: 4 detachable walls and a separate roof.

Tents of this type can be found in numerous iconographic sources from the medieval period. Usually, similar models were used as a form of stock, or barn for horses during war expeditions.

The construction of a barn tent provides a very large usable area, requiring a small number of ropes. Frame construction also gives an option of expanding the storage space by joining a few tents.

There is an option of self-setting up a roof on a frame and using it as a form of shed.

A set consists of:
- 5 sheets: a roof and 4 walls - a frame: 2 scantlings of 3 m of length, 1 crossbar of 3 m of length
- 6 additional side scantlings of 2 m of length each
- 27 tent pegs
- 2 windproof ropes
- 6 side ropes, 4 m of length each

Tents of this type date to the second half of the 15th century. You can find them for example in the Swiss manuscript The Amtliche Berner Chronik (or Chronicle of Bern), dating to 1478-1483 r.
