Recent advances in linguistics, primatology, and cultural and cognitive anthropology have brought the study of kinship back into focus. This paper suggests that the house as material culture is the depository of meanings about kinship and social organization of distant human past. Since the symbolic thought is necessary to produce kinship categories, the house can also provide valuable insights into human cognition in the past.

Keywords: сognition, prehistory, kinship, symbols, house
