Random information on the term “Horde”:

A band society, or horde, is the simplest form of human society. A band generally consists of a small kin group, no larger than an extended family or clan. The general consensus of modern anthropology sees the average number of members of a social band at the simplest level of foraging societies as ranging from 30 to 50 people.

‘Horde’ was formed on the basis of a Turkish/Tatar word úrdú, meaning ‘camp.’

Band was one of a set of three terms employed by early modern ethnography to analyse aspects of hunter-gatherer foraging societies. The three were respectively ‘horde,’ ‘band’, and ‘tribe’. The term ‘horde’ was inducted from its use in the works of J. F. McLennan by A. W. Howitt and Lorimer Fison in the mid-1880s to describe a geographically or locally defined division within a larger tribal aggregation, the latter being defined in terms of social divisions categorized in terms of descent. Their idea was then developed by A. R. Radcliffe-Brown, as a model for all Australian indigenous societies, the horde being defined as a group of parental families whose married males all belonged to the one patrilineal clan. ‘Horde’ from the outset bore stereotypical connotations of Australian Aboriginal societies as primitive, closed, rigid and simple, and came to be discarded not only for its implication of ‘swarming savages’ but also because it suggested a fixed tribal- territorial entity which compromised the actual field data, which allow for a far more fluid concept of the group.
