Concept of a home has had its own history. People built a house primarily to protect themselves against elements of nature. Rain, Winds, Heat, Snow were the ones which were addressed first. Then came in additional factors like enemy aggression, be it interspecies or intra-species. People also built houses to announce their social status and thus came into existence of palatial structure. The desire to please the powerful found its way in making of temples, churches etc and also the tombs.
When M. S. Nagaraja Rao undertook an excavation in Tekkalakote in 1964, he unearthed Neolithic Dwelling Units of our ancestors. Nineteen places, indicating human habitat were found here. Carbon dating procedures have revealed that these relics date back to a period spanning 1700 B.C. to 1000 B.C. The findings in these habitats are divided in to two phases.
Throughout history, people have fabricated shelters that fit their surroundings. With a universal set of criteria in mind - including access to tools, availability of materials, and type of climate - individuals from all over the world constantly re-interpret, re-imagine, and re-define the concept of a home.
To many of us, a home is a four-walled fixture on a permanent foundation. But to others, it is a snowy sanctuary, a hidden cave, or even a floating boat. Here, we explore these different types of houses in order to understand how and why such a wide range of shelters exist across the globe.
Shelter, along with food and clothing, is one of Man three most essential necessities. Shelter protects people from the weather, shields them against wild animals and insects, and provides a place to rest. The most common form of shelter would be that of housing, however shelter has evolved into many different forms, including (but not limited to) bomb shelters, bus shelters, tents, trailers and even houseboats.
