Have you seen a "Dome Tent" used for camping?
They are put together by bending two long plastic poles
in the shape of an X as the frame. Then, the nylon material is stretched over.
Dome tents have a large hole at the top. A "fly" or piece of nylon
covers the hole.
Do you see the fly in this
What are the advantages of a shelter that is shaped like
this? Why is there a hole at the top? Why is there a fly to cover the hole?
Think about these questions as you read about the Chumash
shelters and how they are built.
