Mesolithic Hut used by hunter-gatherers travelling from region to region, building villages of wooden huts with domed roofing of bark and animal skin. These huts were communal lodges for extended families with a single basin-shaped fire pit in the center and a round opening in the roof for ventilation of smoke. This is a reconstructed version but originals have been dated back to 4000 BCE.
