Early Neolithic Architectural village homes were simple. Homes were built using a post and lintel style of construction. Structures were basic with two vertical beams holding up one horizontal beam (p.55). The dwellings were then covered with layers of flat stone in a technique called corbelling. In northern European villages, the people used a similar technique called wattle and daub which was a covering of woven branches. Within these interiors of these Neolithic homes archeologist have found full functional furnishings with places to sit and store things (figure1-16). The walls of these homes and the tombs found were often decorated with pictures that told stories giving archaeologist a bit of history.
