A long house or longhouse can be found in many parts of the world. There is the Native American long house in North America, the Neolithic long house and Medieval Dartmoor longhouse in Europe and in Asia, longhouses which date to 1100 -850 B.C have been found in Daepyeong, Korea. It is also said that the long houses all over Asia, in Borneo and in the Pacific Islands and Madagascar originate from the island of Taiwan. The Siraya of ancient Taiwan have built long houses since time immemorial.
