Cooking Stone
Another Cooking Stone
An animal skin was placed in a hollow in the ground, fur side down. The skin was filled with water. These cooking stones were first heated in the fire, then dropped into the skin holding water. The stones heated the water; then meat, roots and herbs could be added, and these would cook. More hot stones could be added as the water cooled.
