Just as in all pre-industrial societies, the historic structures in Anatolia derive from two materials, timber and stone. In timber construction, two categories, namely heaped construction and skeletal construction, are clearly distinguishable. In research to date, it can be seen that these categories have been clearly defined and explained. Yet, structural definitions in masonry buildings are mostly limited to the term heaped construction. However, in traditional masonry structures, it is possible to see, whether clearly or under a layer, a construction that reminds one of skeletal construction.
