Did the houses have roofs?

One of our questions was about the roofs of the houses that were built into the ground. We talked about the fact that it was so long ago that much of the house may have rotted away. We looked at how they may have constructed the roofs with wood.

Now we have a design that we think will work we have constructed our own house to experiment with how they were covered. We think they may have used grass and leaves.

More updates to come.
