A 10,000-year-old house has been unearthed in Israel, offering what archaeologists say is a fascinating glimpse into human development. The structure, which dates back to the beginning of civilisation, was discovered close to Jerusalem in a region known as the Judean Shephelah. It is the oldest structure yet found in the region and dates back to the period in human history when communities first began to domesticate plants and animals.

'Here we have evidence of mans transition to permanent dwellings and that in fact is the beginning of the domestication of animals and plants; instead of searching out wild sheep, ancient man started raising them near the house.'
The remarkable finds, the oldest of which are described as hailing from the Pre-Pottery Neolithic Period, were made during an excavation prior to the widening of a highway.

“Beginning of civilization” only 10,000 years ago?
They really knew how to build stuff back then.
Not like the cheap junk you see these days.
And the best part is there’s only three months left on the second mortgage.
Historic cottage, fixerupper, perfect for young couple.
You’ll swoon over the paleolithic fixtures, real rock
walls, water close by. Has opening for double pane window.
Close to schools. Etc. Etc.

I think that’s the British spelling.
I think that's how they spell it back in Ye Merrye Olde Englande.
Yeah, and you could get a good loan back then without government involvement.
There were no property taxes.
You could own rocks, sticks, bows and arrows without having to register them.
The media back then didn’t reference them as items of hate, and those who owned them as Tea Baggers.
The family was able to home school with no problem. Religion was in it’s infancy, and man was free to think as he wanted.
When kids came, it was a celebration. Women didn’t come round trying to get the mom to kill her fetus.
You tossed seeds in the ground, covered it up, and watered. Then months later after the harvest, you took seeds from the harvest and replanted them without having to get permission, or pay for the right.
Water fell from the sky. It didn’t fall from Uncle Sam. Territorial oppresses didn’t even dare try to charge for it. It would take 10,000 years of progress for that to take place.
Divorce wasn’t a word that would be invented for thousands of years. Children knew their parents until they died.
Ah, the good old days.
What a dump.
No plumbing, lazy-boy or ice maker...
It’s as bad as their teeth.
LOL!! That’s for sure.
Yeah, civilization, because according to Bammie, there wouldn’t be a house if there weren’t roads to it, and there wouldn’t be roads if there weren’t government...
Yeah, civilization, because according to Bammie, there wouldnt be a house if there werent roads to it, and there wouldnt be roads if there werent government...
And 10,000 years ago, any “government” was despotic and cruel, to say the least. But Bammie thinks all government is god.
“instead of searching out wild sheep”
“Sheep Gone Wild, 10,000 BC”
Probably just got the mortgage paid off.
Former owners were the Flintstone family.
Bringing it up to code is gonna cost a bundle.
If you like your stone hut, you can keep it.
Did they found any ‘Better Stone Home and Gardens’, ‘Martha Stewart Cave Living’ or ‘Good Cavekeeping’ magazines around? If not how about a tv, radio or a hot tub?
Most popular band: Stone Temple Pilots.
I thought it was 6000 years ago.
“A 10,000-year-old house has been unearthed in Israel...”
This is what happens if you allow dirt to accumulate. Dust and mop your home at least once a week.
So long as they leave the “homeowners association” that came with it buried...
Is this where the chimp got it on with a pig?
thanks Fractal Trader, alas:
