In the Paleolithic Age, people live in caves and rough-tent like places. These were called temporary shelters. They used temporary shelters because they had to move from place to place quickly in order to follow their food source.
As the Neolithic Age developed, the food supply became more stable. The people were able to settle in permanent shelters.
Round and rectangular shelters were made from mud bricks packed together in many areas. We also added stones and tree branches to strengthen the roof and walls.
We usually have several room inside called pits. In these pits, we could store food and cook in those pits. The pits that we cook in were lined with clay and they were warmed by dropping hot stones into water.
