Answer:

Sedentarization

Explanation:

The most important consequence of the Agricultural Revolution, occurred at different times in different places, but generally about 7 to 8,000 years before present, was the stabilization of nomadic tribes to a given area and the beginning of social structures and social lives.

Nomads were generally hunters-gatherers following the herds in their seasonal migrations with their light disposable dwellings. Community life, as intended with a cultural core and interfamily relations, was minimal; so was the division of tasks or the protection of property.

Sedentary life brought the birth of the village, with all the ensuing consequences such as the appointment of a ruler, the division of the population in classes, the cult of the dead, the allocation of land and livestock.

Sedentarization was the first step towards a settled political community life.
