Yurt BuilderSome may call them crude, yet the yurt is the nomad's way of life.
When the steppe nomads were not on the move, it was essential they found shelter for themselves, their families, livestock and all the items carried with them to make life tolerable in such a harsh, unforgiving environment. The best way to achieve this was by bringing their homes with them; as such, the portable 'yurt' was developed, probably, in its earliest form, around 1000BC. A collapsible wooden structure consisting of supporting 'ribs' that were bent into shape, probably by steam-treating them to give pliancy without breaking, yurts were then covered by layers of hides and wool to keep their occupants both warm and dry. Of course, there was little or no usable wood to be found on the steppes, so the items the nomads had in abundance - hides, wool, cheese and meat - were traded with settled peoples in return for timber to build their homes.
