1 Tom Abbott, Biddulph High School and made available through and only for non commercial use in schools Settlement Sites P PH Village Move the village until you think it is in the correct location on the settlement maps

2 Tom Abbott, Biddulph High School and made available through and only for non commercial use in schools Valley Site Some settlements are located in a valley to obtain water from the river. The flat land (deposited silt) also provided fertile farmland. The flat land above the floodplain might provide an excellent transport route way. Example: Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire and A38 River floodplain Raised river terrace

3 Tom Abbott, Biddulph High School and made available through and only for non commercial use in schools Gap Town In places which provide an easy route through a ridge or highland villages were set up to take advantage of the trade and travellers. Highland can provide good defensive sites. Example: Corfe, Isle of Purbeck

4 Tom Abbott, Biddulph High School and made available through and only for non commercial use in schools Defence Site Early settlers needed to find places which were easily defended from attack. A good site was one which was surrounded by a river meander. The villagers would only have to build defences on one side at the neck of the meander. River meander (incised) Defences on the neck of meander Example: City of Durham

5 Tom Abbott, Biddulph High School and made available through and only for non commercial use in schools Dry Point Site In areas of the country where the landscape flooded regularly people sought locations which were normally drier. This might be on the edge of the wetland area or on islands of higher land. Example: Isle Ely (Fens), Cambridgeshire

6 Tom Abbott, Biddulph High School and made available through and only for non commercial use in schools Bridging Point Villages were sometimes built at places where it was easier to cross a valley floodplain. These places acted as nodal points, an attraction for travellers and traders. Example: City of Oxford
