  1. "House ground plans [are] related to relative permanence of settlement pattern; . . . circular ground plans will tend to be associated with relatively impermenent or mobile settlement patterns, rectangular ground plans with more permanent or sedentary community settlement patterns" (7)Robbins, Michael C. - House types and settlement patterns, 1966 - 2 Variables

    This article proposes that ground plans may be used as a criterion for determining the relative permanence of settlement patterns in archaelogical societies. Results suggest that impermanent settlements and small community size are significantly associated with circular ground plans and that permanent settlements with larger community sizes are significantly associated with rectangular ground plans.

  2. Ground plan shape will be associated with settlement permanenceArwen L. Feather - Circular or rectangular ground plans: Some costs and benefits, 1996 - 2 Variables

    In the present study, Feather explores the relationship between floor plan shape and settlement permanence in order to theorize how mobility strategy influences floor plan choice. Feather incorporates the theoretical framework of previous studies by examining how floor plans and building materials vary across mobility and residential strategies, as well as social and political concerns.

  7. More permanent settlements are associated with larger house areas.Hrnčíř, Václav - Identifying post-marital residence patterns in prehistory: A phylogenetic co..., 2020 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the association between post-marital residence patterns and dwelling size in pre-industrial societies using comparative methods and a global sample of 86 societies. The results suggest that matrilocality is associated with larger dwellings (over 65 square meters) in agricultural societies, while patrilocality is associated with smaller dwellings. The study also finds that sedentism is the single best predictor of house size. The study concludes that post-marital residence and house size evolve in a correlated fashion, which can help make reliable inferences about the social organization of prehistoric societies from archaeological records.

  9. Societies with predominantly circular houses will prefer curved lines in art. Societies with predominantly rectangular houses will prefer straight lines in art (745-746).Robbins, Michael C. - Material Culture and Cognition, 1966 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests for a correlation between primary house shapes and preferences for curved or straight lines in art.

  10. "[Size of community is related to subsistence economy]. Local communities tend to be very small in gathering, hunting, pastoral, and fishing societies. . . . Horticulturalists and extensive cereal cultivators occupy . . . larger settlements . . . and intensive agriculturalists [have largest communities]"Murdock, George Peter - Correlations of exploitative and settlement patterns, 1969 - 2 Variables

    This study examines relationships between subsistence type, population size, and sedentarism. Hunting, gathering, fishing, and herding societies tend to be smaller than horticultural and agricultural societies. Horticulture, agriculture, and fishing societies tend to be more sedentary.
