In the article Neanderthals May Have Practiced the Ancient Art of Interior Design by

Colin Schultz, we learned about design and use of caves by Neanderthals.

We can discovery that our ancestors were using the caves as their homes, but the most
important is that use those caves in organized way. Neanderthals defined one space for
every activity. They protected their houses, doing the dangerous activities away of their
homes.

According to article our ancestors over the years tended to use the caves space in similar
ways and according to their needs. I believe that they organized their homes
appropriately, one able we have until today.

Neanderthals May Have Practiced the Ancient Art of Interior Design

Excavations showed that Neanderthals may have designed their homes with purpose

The stereotype of Neanderthals as big-boned brutes is evaporating rapidly. Recent


research has detailed their penchant for highly-refined tools, self-expression through art,
and a love of the grill. And now a new study, led by Julien RielSalvatore, has found that
Neanderthals didn't just decorate their cave all willy-nilly. Rather, they laid out their
homes with care, with different parts of the cave being used for different purposes in a
repeated, reliable way.

This research isn't the first to reveal Neanderthals' interior design chop, but more
evidence only adds to the argument that they, too, practiced what was thought to have
been an exclusively human behavior. Riel-Salvatore and his team dug through the history
of occupation of a cave in Italy that's known as Riparo Bombrini,and they say that over
thousands of years, the cave was used multiple times, often in different ways. Sometimes
it was a foraging base camp, sometimes a longer term home. Depending on how the cave
was being used, says Riel-Salvatore, the cave's decor- the fire and workspaces and the
room where hunted game was cleaned and prepared- was laid out differently.

When Neanderthals were living in the cave for longer periods at a time, the researchers
say, they often kept a fire place, or hearth, at the back of the cave, where its warmth and
light would permeate the living space. Messy or dangerous activities, like making stone
tools or cleaning animals, were given their own spaces. The findings, says Riel-Salvatore
and the team in the paper, suggests that "noisome activities likely took place away from
the back of the shelter and that this was likely especially true for activities that generated
animal refuse liable to rot and! or draw pests or carnivores to the site."

The team also found that when the Neanderthals came back to the cave, again and again
over the years, they tended to use the caves' space in similar ways, tweaked to suit their
needs, suggesting there was a method to their design schemes.
Neandertales pueden haber practicado el arte antiguo de Diseo de
Interiores. Las excavaciones mostraron que los neandertales podran haber diseado sus

hogares con el propsito.

El estereotipo de los neandertales como brutos de huesos grandes se est evaporando


rpidamente. La investigacin reciente ha detallado su aficin por herramientas altamente
refinados, la auto-expresin a travs del arte, y un amor de la parrilla. Y ahora un nuevo estudio,
dirigido por Julien RielSalvatore, ha encontrado que los neandertales no slo decoran su cueva
todos queramos o no. Ms bien, se colocan sus hogares con cuidado, con diferentes partes de la
cueva se utilizan para diferentes propsitos en una manera repetida y fiable.

Esta investigacin no es el primero en revelar el diseo de interiores chuleta de neandertales, pero


ms pruebas slo se suma al argumento de que ellos tambin practican lo que se cree que ha sido
un comportamiento exclusivamente humano. Riel-Salvatore y su equipo excavaron a travs de la
historia de la ocupacin de una cueva en Italia que se conoce como Riparo Bombrini, y dicen que a
lo largo de miles de aos, la cueva fue utilizada varias veces, a menudo en diferentes formas. A
veces era un campamento base de forrajeo, a veces un hogar a ms largo plazo. Dependiendo de
cmo se est utilizando la cueva, dice Riel-Salvatore, la cueva de decoracin- el fuego y los
espacios de trabajo y la sala donde juego cazado fue limpiado y preparacin para fue presentado
de manera diferente.

Cuando los neandertales vivan en la cueva durante perodos ms largos a la vez, dicen los
investigadores, que a menudo mantienen una chimenea o fogn, en el fondo de la cueva, donde
su calor y la luz se permear el espacio de vida. Actividades Sucias o peligrosas, como la fabricacin
de herramientas de piedra o de animales de la limpieza, se les dio a sus propios espacios. Los
resultados, dice Riel-Salvatore y el equipo en el papel, sugiere que "las actividades ruidosas
probablemente tuvieron lugar lejos de la parte posterior de la vivienda y que esto era probable
especialmente cierto para las actividades que generan los animales rechazar responsables se
pudran y! O atraen plagas o carnvoros en el sitio.

El equipo tambin encontr que cuando los neandertales llegaron a la cueva, una y otra vez en los
ltimos aos, tendan a utilizar el espacio de las cuevas de manera similar, ajustado para adaptarse
a sus necesidades, lo que sugiere que haba un mtodo para sus esquemas de diseo.
