Neolithic settlement pattern, Architecture

The Neolithic Civilisation has been documented through excavations in Mainland Greece and Crete (Knossos) already for the Aceramic period (6800-6500 BC). Dwelling were, in fact, huts made of wooden posts, mud and straw, with floors of beaten earth and hearths for cooking, light and heating. In the Early Neolithic period (6500-5800 BC), hamlets are the norm, but we also see villages, such as Sesklo in Magnesia (Thessaly). A considerable variety of dwelling types and building materials can be identified. There are curvilinear, rectangular or square structures with walls build of clay, mudbricks and timber, on stone foundations.
