What Are Some of the Characteristics of the Houses of Paleo Indians?

The houses of Paleo Indians were often temporary structures built from wood, stones and brush. The houses had a circular form and they consisted of poles leaning in at the top.

Paleo Indians used brush to cover the poles of their houses, which they then covered with animal hides or mud. They sometimes used rocks to support the entire structure. The Paleo Indians had fire hearts in their houses, which they used for cooking their food and a heating source. Paleo Indians were one of the first tribes that inhabited the American continent. They became extinct altogether about 7,000 B.C.
