A village is a clustered person resolution or community, better than a hamlet, but smaller than a town or city. Although usually situated in rural areas, the word urban village may be applied to assured urban neighborhoods. Villages normally are stable with fixed dwellings, but temporary villages can occur. Further, the dwellings of a village are quite close to one another, as against being spread broadly over the landscape.

During the human past, villages have been the normal form of society for agricultural societies, and even for some non-agricultural societies. Towns and cities were few, and were home to only a little proportion of the population. The Industrial Revolution caused a lot of villages to develop into towns and cities; this development of urbanisation has continued and hastened since, even if not always in connection with industrialisation. Villages have thus been eclipsed in value, as units of human culture and settlement.
