    7 - Settlement Site And Situation 7 - Settlement Site And Situation Presentation Transcript

    • Settlement Site and Situation
    • You should be able to;
      • Define settlement site and situation
      • Understand that the location and growth of a settlement is related to its site and situation
      • Identify and explain the site factors responsible for the location of Bratislava
      • Identify and explain the situation of Bratislava and link this to the reasons why Bratislava has grown into a major city
    • References and Definitions
      • Site describes the point at which a settlement is located, it describes the land it is build on. Factors such as relief, soil, water supply and other resources were important in choosing the sites of early settlements.
      • Situation describes where the settlement is located in relation to the surrounding features such as other settlements, mountains, rivers and communications (roads, etc.). It is the situation of a settlement that determines whether it will grow from a small village into a large town or city.
    • Site Example What site advantages do each of these settlement sites have?
    • Situation Example Why has Dorestad grown into a major port settlement?
    • Your Task
      • Read the references; Geog.GCSE pages 170+171 (good for site examples), and Key Geography pages 150+151 (better for situation)
      • Use the maps from class and Google Earth if needed, produce an annotated sketch map to show the site and situation of Bratislava (there is a good example of page 151 of Key Geography to help)
      • Factors influencing its original growth.
      • Factors influencing its continued growth now.
