Languages of publication
In my article I draw attention to the earthen construction technologies in the area of the Great Hungarian Plain, for which the Slovak literature has name the Lower Land. In this geographic area has been profiled dominant model of lifestyle, known as the Pannonian cultural zone. In the processes of colonization of the Great Hungarian Plain, the clay was applied as the most affordable building material. According to the statistical surveys 80 to 90 % of the houses had earthen walls in all regions of this geographical area. For almost all Slovak colonists, as for the many more, the earthen construction technologies have not been a part of their cultural outfit that would have brought here from their home countries. Between the mid-18th to mid-20th century earthen construction technology took a dominant position to such an extent that in the area of resettled Great Hungarian Plain it became one of determining sign of the Pannonian – or Lower Land – type of house.
