    Abstract

    Settlement takes into account the physical and geographical factors of a targeted area and dwellings are placed generally in the upper sectors of small watersheds. These represent the most uniform territorial entities from a geographic and strategic perspective. On a large scale, the situation is similar regarding the villages within large watersheds. The same principles have applied to settlement location throughout history.
