Fishermen's tales – Vol.2

Let’s travel a bit back in time. Well, basically not a bit; rather a lot! We are back in the Neolithic Age; Europe, 6000 B.C. It is the place mostly inhabited by fishermen and cattlemen. A vigorous society has managed to settle perfectly in the environment and using wooden structures has faced successfully all the challenges introduced by the nature itself. The whole settlement is built on wooden poles which are bedded into the lake. These poles are actually the skeleton which supports the prehistoric houses and have been used for centuries!
