The wood, bark, and needles of Douglas-fir were found in the ancient village of Qithyil. This wood is known—today as in the past—as an excellent firewood. It is also strong and durable, used to make dip-nets, harpoon shafts, and stakes for fish traps. The needles were used to line floors and cover food, like an ancient saran wrap.
