At Long House, the back row of rooms was anchored to the cliff. Small rooms, called cavates, were often carved into the stone. Some rooms had designs painted on the back walls. Here, the house is gone, but the cavate entrance and the holes for anchoring the roof beams are still visible. A rare surviving painted wall decoration has been covered with glass for preservation.
