The physical geography of an area was very important to early people when they were deciding on the site for a new settlement.Site Factors:- Water Supply- a clean supple of water for drinking, cooking, and cleaning. Water could be taken from a river or a well.- Relief- the area needed to be high enough to be safe from flooding but low enough to be sheltered from strong winds- Transport- near a river or the coast to have easier access to other settlements.- Soil- deep fertile soil to make it easier to farm crops and rear animals.- Resources- a source of timber or rock was needed for building. Wood was needed as fuel for heat and cooking.

Situation or position refers to the location of the village or town in relation to surrounding areas. If a settlement had good access to natural resources, and to other settlements, it would grow in size. Many settlements with good sit and situation have grown to large cities.
