What is a Settlement Hierarchy?

Hierarchy is just fancy name

Don’t be put off by fancy names

Geographers love them, it brings identity to their subject

slide2

You’ve done feudalism in History?

Of course you have, you remember:

King on top

then beastly Barons

next the brave fighting Knights

last and least, those poor old peasants

What shape does that make?

slide3
Brilliant, of course it’s a triangle.

But WHY is it a triangle?

Here are two reasons, you probably have more:

  • Most important at the top, least at the bottom
  • The higher up the triangle, less of them there are
slide4
OK – now it’s time to make a settlement hierarchy

Think of the different types of settlement you know

Town Village Hamlet

City Megalopolis Farm

And put them into a triangle with the largest at the top and smallest at bottom . . .

slide5

So there you are – its as simple as that. But you can make yours more interesting by adding colour and pictures

Then write a sentence underneath to explain what it is to an alien

Don’t ever let anyone ever tell you that Geography is hard!

slide6

The Hierarchy in real life – on a map

City

Town

Village

Questions

How many cities / larger towns / smaller towns / villages are there?

Why are there no farms on the map?

What pattern is starting to show?
