Abstract: A space is rigid if its only self-homeomorphism is the identity. We answer questions of Jan van Mill by constructing for each $ n$, $ 4 \leqslant n < \infty $, a rigid $ n$-dimensional compactum whose square is homogeneous because it is a manifold. Moreover, for each $ n$, $ 4 \leqslant n < \infty $, we give uncountably many topologically distinct such examples. Infinite-dimensional examples are also given.
