Glenwood Culture House Floor Plan

Glenwood Culture House Floor Plan

Time Frame: 900

The excavation of these structures indi- cates that the most typical house built by Glenwood people had a square shape with rounded corners and a covered entryway that commonly faced south. These earthlodges were constructed within a semi-subterranean pit, and had walls of closely spaced vertical posts and four conical roof supports spaced around a central firepit.
