Sample text

Separate houses (as at Kolmakovskiy Redoubt) or residential districts (at larger outposts like Fort Ross) should be identifiable in most instances. Furthermore, residential architecture should be correlated with the status and ethnicity of household residents, along a gradient from log dwellings that were completely Russian in design to fully indigenous forms of earthen-walled structures. Furnishings and features such as window coverings (glass vs. mica or gutskin), heat sources (iron stoves, brick heating ovens, open fires), and flooring (wood or dirt) can be expected to provide parallel indications of class status.
