Where the House Came From

Shelter is one of the human needs. Perhaps not as greatly appreciated as the need for food and water, but a need nonetheless. There are lots of ways to create shelter, but where did the concept of a house begin?

Anciently, humans were hunters and gatherers. This existence was very transient in nature. At some point, around 9,500 BC, farming allowed from groups of humans to settle in one location and form communities. The first known town, Catal Huyuk, was created in 6,500 BC. It consisted of primitive single room mud houses. Egyptians are attributed with creating multiple room houses. Persians later constructed houses with timber and stone. Romans created heated homes. One civilization after another added improvements and variation on the design of this now universal dwelling place. Like most ideas and technology, the modern house is a culmination of centuries of development. Fortunately, every iteration of the house is not lost to time. Many historic and even ancient houses can be toured throughout the world.
