Archeologists who uncovered the first homosexual caveman have discovered the prehistoric village where he was the only gay.
The male skeleton - believed to be more than 7,500 years old - was found buried in the same way that Neolithic communities buried women, suggesting a different sexuality.
Now the same team of experts have discovered what they believe was his home village near Prague in the Czech Republic.
Dig director Radek Baly - from the Czech Archaeological Society - said: ""We have managed to unearth impressions of wooden supporting structures of so-called long houses, typical of the Neolithic period."
The skeleton was originally discovered last year with a series of clues that led experts to believe the grave belonged to a gay man.
During the Neolithic period, men were traditionally buried lying on their right side with the head pointing towards the west while women on their left side with the head facing east.
In this case, the man was on his left side with his head facing west.
A further clue was that men were buried with weapons, hammers and flint knives as well as food and drink to accompany them to the other side.
Women would be buried with necklaces made from teeth, pets, and copper earrings, as well as domestic jugs and an egg-shaped pot placed near the feet.
The gay caveman was buried with household jugs, and no weapons.
"Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transvestite," said archaeologist Katerina Semradova.
