“Dwelling,” used in eHRAF as subject to index and search the ethnographic and archaeological texts, is described as: “residential buildings (e.g., hogans, tipis, tents, lodges, yurts); seasonal, local and status differences in dwelling types; caves as dwellings; durability and portability of dwellings; mode of construction; adequacy (e.g., for protection from elements, for security, or light and ventilation); typical number of occupants; ceremonies during and after construction; etc.”
