Best Answer

While they were the first Mesoamerican culture to form small cities, most of the Olmec's were farmers and fisherman who lived in small villages. They would build their homes on top of mounds or platforms. The actual homes would be made of packed earth around a pole which held it up in the center. This would be not only their sleeping quarters, but also where they dined.
