In cultural anthropology, sedentism (sometimes called sedentariness; compare sedentarism) simply refers to the practice of living in one place for a long time. As of 2017 the majority of people belong to sedentary cultures. In evolutionary anthropology and archaeology, sedentism takes on a slightly different sub-meaning, often applying to the transition from nomadic society to a lifestyle that involves remaining in one place permanently. Essentially, sedentism means living in groups permanently in one place.
