The design for this structure is taken from tents used in almost every area and era of history. The conical shape is documented as having been used from Sweden to Italy and can be seen in sketches of Henry VIII’s camp and photos of the Zulu campaign. Original references define the tent as a “single pole, single canvas tent”-a true historical “one pole”!
