Earth has been used for several thousand years as a material in the construction of embankments, dams, walls and occasionally domed roofs. Examples of earth buildings include the Great Wall of China, which is faced only with stone, houses and granaries in many Third World countries, and some of the older dwellings in many other places. It is estimated that about a third of the world’s population live in earth dwellings.
