Back in Paleolithic times, people lived in caves or tent like shelters. They were temporary shelters because people were nomads who had to constantly move around to hunt and gather their food.
I wish that we had a permanent home! All of this moving is so hard!
Shh! I see dinner!
Back in Neolithic times, people settled down to farm, so they began to build permanent shelters. They were usually round or rectangle shaped houses made of mud bricks, stones, and tree branches. They had openings high in the walls and sometimes ladders were used to get inside. The inside of the shelters would have several rooms used for specific purposes. In the kitchen there were places to store food in the floor and pits for cooking. There were also bedrooms.
I'll be in for dinner after I milk the cow.
Thanks for digging me that cooking pit!
These changes are important because permanent houses gave protection from wild animals and harsh weather. They also made life more comfortable, allowed people to cook food in new ways, and enabled people to settle together and build communities.
I hate the rain! Inside I go!
