Description: At Hassuna man speedily grew conscious of his powers. Cave-man and nomad here gave place to the man of settled life who, as cultivator and breeder of livestock, appears to have preferred a permanent abode, the house, to that moving home, the tent. Architecture came into being, and the "functional" qualities of this new-found skill are truly remarkable : planning becomes harmonious and lay-outs ingenious. Everything has obviously been thought out beforehand.
