Before technology improved, our ancestors used to stay in caves

Some people choose to live in a cave today because it's tradition, while for others, it's an economic necessity. There are people who build their own cave homes for environmental reasons. Most modern cave homes were intentionally carved out of the rock -- not many people live in natural caves. Like many peasants from the outskirts of Yanan, China, Ren Shouhua was born in a cave and lived there until he got a job in the city and moved into a concrete-block house.

The combination of stone tools indicating the presence of human ancestors and the dating of the level leads to the conclusion that human ancestors (hominids) were in the cave 2 million years ago. This is the earliest evidence for intentional cave occupation by human ancestors. Hold hands if you must move in darkness, and don't let anybody fall behind. Stay warm and dry. Caves are frequently cold, and hypothermia is one of the most dangerous hazards you will face. Always bring warm, non-cotton clothes, and pack a large plastic bag in your helmet to wear as a poncho to conserve warmth.

Advantages: The construction of cave homes requires low technology. They are protected from the elements, and are insulated from the extremes of heat and cold. Disadvantages: Caves dwellings lack light, have poor ventilation, and are often associated with poverty.
