Diversity in Hunter-Gatherer Architecture


This is an abstract from the "Defining and Measuring Diversity in Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Diversity in the architecture of sedentary and complex societies is well-studied, but an emphasis on the role of mobility in hunter-gatherer adaptation has resulted in a lack of discussion of the built environment among these communities. Here we take a temporally broad and cross-cultural approach to document variability in archaeologically known hunter-gatherer architecture, focusing on diversity in form and function and the relationship between variability in architectural elements and environmental conditions, subsistence strategies, and social organization.
