Cluster Settlements and Power Structures

— filed under:

Settlements are always embedded in a complex system of overlaying power structures of the respective societies, regardless of whether this power is manifested in a political, economic, military, administrative, legal or cultic way. These power structures lead to a differentiation of settlements, e.g. hill forts or strongholds and fortified settlements, early urban centers or administrative places. It is important to analyze this manifestation of power based on the architectural structures of the settlements themselves, to link them with their cultural and geographical settlement environment and to place them in an over regional context.
