History thread! what are the oldest man made structures known?
The oldest I’ve heard of that were likely permanent are houses on the Isle of Man. 9000 years old.
The oldest evidence a ‘structure’ ever are in Japan, from about 500,000 years ago, a hut. But since it was built by Homo Erectus, not Homo Sapiens, it may not fall under the category of “man” made.Posted 5 years ago
Just been thinking about the history of our race and I am curious about the oldest structures.
Since Fred aka Talkemada aka elfinsafety isn’t around any more, I thought I would start a thread in the spirit of his architecture threads?

There is excellent evidence to support the theory that homo carradicius built something strongly resembling the Dawes Galaxy just after they moved from the plains of Africa.
Sadly they all died out shortly afterward due to the lack of availability of 27 inch tyres outside Europe.Posted 5 years ago
