Definition of Human settlement

Human settlement Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Settlement, locality or populated place are general terms used in geography, statistics, archaeology, landscape history and other subjects for a permanent or temporary community in which people live or have lived, without being specific as to size, population or importance. A settlement can therefore range in size from a small number of dwellings grouped together to the largest of cities with surrounding urbanized areas. The term may include hamlets, villages, towns and cities.
