Scope note
Refers to caves that are utilized, generally having been excavated or otherwise altered, for sheltering humans or animals, or for use as storage, worship, or another use. This term may overlap in meaning with "rock-cut architecture," but cave architecture is not necessarily rock-cut, and rock-cut architecture is not necessarily designed around a cave.
