making permanent shelters by keishaneris mercado-jimenez
with mud to stay warm in winter and cool in summer we made homes in a rectangular shape with many rooms.
"several rooms that had places to store food built right into the floor. Pits for cooking were also dug into the floor and lined with clay. People may have filled the pits with water, dropping in hot stones to make the water boil for cooking."
"the development of permanent shelters was important in several ways. Houses gave people protection from harsh weather and wild animals and made life more comfortable. People could cook food in new ways. The long-lasting shelters enabled people to settle together in larger communities."
hunter-gatherers were nomads who had to move often in order to follow the wild animal herds or find new plants to eat so they had temporary homes.
