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.
