  • The first great change agriculture brought about was the use of permanent shelters.
  • Sometimes, people added stones and tree branches to the mud to strengthen the walls and roof.
  • In many areas, people used mud bricks, packed together, to build houses that were round or rectangular in shape.
  • Inside were 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 shelters kept us safe from bad weather
  • The long-lasting shelters enabled people to settle together in larger communities
