Use this page as the starting point to browse Ethnoarch's connected databases of countries, groups, types, models and images. This division in continents is rather general, separating the globe in five, as opposed to seven or eight continents. It combines a geographic (or geologic) criteria with a geo-political (or cultural) one, as continents are understood as those uninterrupted blocks of land as the Americas, Africa and Oceania (Australia and neighbouring islands) are. But it divides the remaining block of land which is Eurasia using a more geo-political criteria. However, the limitations of this mixed division are highly compensated with how it simplifies for this particular project the classification of buildings.
