Until the time when people have mastered the art of construction, the safest human habitations were caves. They were natural protection from beasts, weather and other human tribes. The importance of caves for survival is confirmed by the carbonized bones that have been found in various caves. One example is Kadjenica in Ovcar-Kablar canyon, the hiding place and refugee shelter of people who died when Turks did set fire on the entrance.
