Why was man a nomad?

Early life Homo was a shepherd. They moved to follow the herds they hunted and earned, by hoarding and fishing, what they could eat.

When we think of nomadic societies, we often imagine tribes roaming the plains or crossing deserts in search of food and water. However, it's important to understand that this way of life was not simply a matter of choice, but rather a necessity for survival. For thousands of years, our ancestors were obliged to be nomads, as they depended entirely on the natural resources available in their environment. They had to follow migrating herds or move to more fertile areas according to the seasons to find enough food to survive. It was only as communities began to develop agriculture that the sedentary lifestyle was born. By growing their own food, they were able to stay put all year round without having to constantly search for sustenance. So, while the sedentary and nomadic lifestyles may seem very different, they both evolved to meet the basic needs of human beings.
