Timely of you to mention Stonehenge, Rockessence, for tonight I think we should look at the beginnings of architecture.

During the Ice Age, human beings did desperate things to survive. They lived not only in caves, but in the skeletons of dead mammoths:

30 bone hut sites out of Mammoth bone made by prehistoric humans during the Paleolithic period has been found (as deep as 22.5 m deep) in Czech Republic, Poland and Ukraine in Europe. The huts and houses were Circular or oval huts and as much as 15 to 20 feet in diameter. The oldest are dated to be 27,500 years old, (Ukraine houses are dated at between 12,000 and 19,000 years ago) and whole villages have been found, being the oldest towns found. Humankind started creating urban centers like those clusters of homes 15,000 years ago, during the Ice Age.

Can we imagine how difficult it most have been for human beings to have lived and kept warm in these barren structures, just how difficult our ancestors had it?
