English kitchens at places like Hampton Court had large boiling kettles that
were used to boil meats prior to being roasted, among other things.  They
were also used for stews, etc.  That's what the one in this kitchen looked
like to me.  Unfortunately they had the area blocked off so I couldn't
really get a good look at what the area above the fire looked like.
