The Barrel was used by the English to store all the fresh water that they brought from England. but could also contain food, tools etc....The barrels are hollow cylindrical containers made by wood, with usually metal or wood(cheaper version) hoops around the barrel. Additionally, one end of the barrel is wider that the other. But unfortunately, the water inside the barrel soaks into the barrel after a long period of time, and so the English lacked fresh water on their journey to America.
Powhatan house for a family
This is a typical Powhatan family's house. As shown in the picture, the wool and fur were hunted by the Powhatans to keep warmth. However, the Powhatans lacked rocks, which they used to also keep warmth. Therefore, they traded precious pearls in return from the English rocks( which are commonly found on mountains).
