Basic outdoor fire pit. Note the bar for hanging stew pots/dutch ovens, the modern grill racks for grilling. inside the floor is made of blocks raised about 1/2 way up the inside of the pit wall to bring the cooking surface comfortably within reach and the fire close to the surface. Using this pit one can do everything needed to cook outdoors...but it's just the beginning.
