Yep. As far as I'm concerned. If I wanted to find a village. I would follow the smoke and other signs of humanity.

If I lived in the village, I wouldn't need a map for anything, because I would know.

If I lived in the village, I'm damned if I would leave a map telling where and how many.

If I did want to leave a map of where and how many, I wouldn't write in in stone. I would use wood as I could correct the information as it changed (As it would)

And on and on.

Like i said you wouldn't just stroll into a village back then, you'd have to have permission of living people and the spirits/ancestors, and the places to do the asking.

If I was talking to the spirits and ancestors, I wouldn't need any map.

The idea of a map is redundant in my mind.

I can see only one application and its not one that you have mentioned.
