Earth use as a construction material is a practice widely adopted by humans in many different places on the planet, from the earliest times to our days. 

Although, it is not known the exact time and the place of origin of earth architecture, archaeological studies indicate the use of earth for four thousand years, in the village of Jericho (biblical city), where the houses were made of clay. In the Old Testament there is also a reference to the use of raw earth, by the Egyptians, in the construction of buildings and monuments. In many places on the planet, Earth is still regarded as the primary construction material.
