Contest #803: Prehistoric Pile Dwellings in Uhldingen-Mühlhofen, Germany

This week’s contest location, hint and reveal were from zorro the fox! Thanks for doing the legwork.

Where did our ancestors live ?
Ancestors, I mean a long time ago, a very long time, before C. !
We all know about cavemen living in… caves !
After those caves, human beings lived in their first houses built by them and some were built on stilts over the water (during Bronze Age then Iron Age).

It still exists around the world, people living in houses built on stilts over waters, mainly fishing communities.
