Thank you for explaining terms as used by scientists.

Is agriculture considered a necessary condition for a settlement?

Does permanence refer to year-round habitation or to immobility of the shelter, or both? For example, if people live in the same tent at the same location for many years, is that a permanent habitat? Or, if people live in a stone hut for three weeks each year but elsewhere the rest of time, is that a permanent habitat?
