Synopsis:

The earliest forms of personal dwellings were constructed out of ice, stone, mud, and other materials locally found. Whether a tent or simple dwelling for an ordinary citizen, or a palace for a royal family, each house met the needs of its occupants, and tells us their economic circumstances, community position, and climate.
