Chinese term or phrase: 居室葬
Context:

中国史前时代最主要的废弃习俗居室葬.

These three characters appear several times together. I'm not sure what the 居室 means in this case, and what form of the word "bury" (burial grounds, burials) would be correct. Also, do you think the 葬 refers to the human burials or burial of the abandoned homes? Thanks ever so much!
