Archaeologists have evidence that humans living in caves used smaller caves or alcoves. In early Europe people built them from mammoth tusks and skins.

School’s out! Holidays are here and you know what that means. If you’ve got kids, they’ll either be causing chaos around the house, or parked in front of the TV.
