A canopy bed features a bed head, or tester, with tall post at each corner at least four feet high that supports a fabric covering that can be drawn back. During the Middle Ages thatched roofs were home to burrowing mice, caterpillars and other insects that often fell from the roof on to sleeping victims below. To solve the problem, posts were erected at all corners and a sheet thrown over the top to catch any wayward pests that could then be thrown out, come morning. And also, years later, the rich people and royalty started using these beds.
