      Additional Physical Format: Online version: Adams, Spencer Lionel, Long house of the Iroquois. Skaneateles, N.Y. [Chicago, Lakeside Press, R.R. Donnelley & Sons. The Iroquois village consisted of two or more longhouses. In the early years the longhouses were built near streams. Later they were built on hilltops for protection from invading tribes. Around the village great wooden palisades with watch towers were built. The village was moved every 10 to 15 years because crops no longer grew well.

      Most people who lived in the Iroquois nation lived in longhouses. An Iroquois longhouse is just what it sounds like, a long house, built of thin bendable wood, with branches woven in and out of the joists. On the outside, people used slabs of birch bark to make a waterproof covering. Birchbark was readily available all over the forest floor. The Iroquois Book of Rites book.
