During the Neolithic period (6000-4500 B.C.), fishermen’s dwellings were rectangular huts, originally consisting of single rooms and later of more spacious areas of 2 or 3 rooms. The floors made of beaten earth were plastered. As for the walls, their lower structures were built with river-smoothed pebbles and rubble, while the upper structures were made of reeds. During the Chalcolithic period (4500- 3000 B.C.), the huts adopted a circular or oval shape of 5 to 6 meters in diameter.
