Why was the central fireplace so important to the ancient Aryan people?


Show Answer

Dinner time was social time. The tribe would gather around the central fireplace. Everyone would eat together and share news and the days happenings. Those who tended the central fireplace also cooked for the rest of the tribe. In addition, the fire tenders were the go-between the people and the fire gods. The fire tenders later developed into the priests of the Aryans, the top caste. The Aryans told oral stories around the fireplace, stories of their triumphs in war and stories of their gods. This is one way Aryan children learned Aryan beliefs and ways of doing things. Aryan Daily Life
