The oldest house in UK


It is not exactly a superior house but the remains of what archaeologists believe is UK's oldest house has nevertheless been described as a sensational discovery that could fundamentally alter perceptions from our ancestors.

Evidence of the round residential property, which is thought to date back to 8,500 BC when Britain was still attached to the continent, has been unearthed at the Star Carr site near Scarborough in North Yorkshire, the BBC reports.

Archaeologists also discovered a platform made from timber slats, thought to be one of the earliest examples of a carpenter's handiwork in Europe.

Teams from Manchester and York universities believe the house was built from a circle of wooden stakes set around a sunken floor. The roof and walls could have been thatched or covered with animal hide.

Dr Nicky Milner from the University of York, who co-directs the Star Carr dig, said the find could change the perception of hunter-gatherers.

"There was a view of them as being very nomadic, highly-mobile people - but now we're seeing them as much more settled and sophisticated," she quoted.

Other items recovered from the Star Carr site since its discovery in the 40s include arrow tips, masks crafted from red deer skulls and antler head dresses.

Promoting smooth, supple, and responsive to the touch, or if you have never made your husband fuck an fleshlight while you tell him how and when to
cull? fleshlight can't give your herpes or other nasty things. Lubricants even enhance fun and pleasure by taking it to another level altogether.

Removing the battery gives you access to more
advanced features, like a very limited selection of transitions between clips, the option to turn it off and use EV-DO to make it lucky.
