9,000-year-old house reveals Stone Age lifestyle

The discovery of a hunter-gatherer’s house on the Isle of Man (as reported here) is shedding new light on the Stone Age lifestyle.

The remains of a 9,000-year-old hunter-gatherers’ house, uncovered during construction at an airport, have been unearthed in Great Britain’s Isle of Man. The house was surrounded by buried mounds of burnt hazelnut shells and stocked with stone tools, according to archaeologists working on the project and a report in the latest British Archaeology.

It is the earliest known complete house on the Isle of Man and one of Britain’s oldest and best-preserved houses, according to the report. The find also offers a glimpse of domestic life 4,000 before Stonehenge.
