www.ukrainianvillage.ca Burdei (Based on field research and archaeological findings; reconstructed to 1900) Temporary shelters dug out of the ground or into the side of a hill were a common feature of the earliest farms of the Ukrainian immigrant settlers. A burdei (also known as a “zemlianka” or “buda”) sheltered newly arrived immigrant families for periods ranging from several weeks to several years while they cleared their land and planted crops. #Alberta #Edmonton #Historic #UCHV
