The first root cellars in recorded history were in Australia – more than 40,000 years ago it is indicated that they were burying their yam harvests in order to keep them fresh. Since then, underground food storage caches have been found all over the world, as people took advantage of the cool moist atmosphere a few feet down.If you’re lucky, you have a room in the basement you can set up as your cold cellar. If you live in an area in which basements are not customary, a root cellar can be housed in a separate concrete or stone cellar outside of the home.
