We can learn a lot about surviving in place for longer periods from past civilizations.  Our ancestors had a wealth of engineering and food preservation techniques, some of which still exist in pockets of modern civilization but are otherwise lost or largely unknown elsewhere.  Here are a couple of examples:

Century eggs are the result of chemically altering eggs over a period of time so that they are edible in a different state rather than spoiled.

Yakhchāl or Persian "ice pit" is a structure where ice could be stored throughout the hottest parts of the year in arid regions and where frozen treats could be produced even in the desert.
