Lineage Bonded Societies are a type of Acephalous Society, predicated on claims of a common ancestor.
A lineage-bonded society is, by population, the smallest classification of Acephalous Society. Beyond a certain size threshold, claims of common lineage become untenable, and the social ties resulting from those claims destabilize. A lineage-bonded society that outgrows its limits may break apart into subgroups. Such branches would then either become separate lineage-bonded societies, or would merge with a neighboring society. When two lineage-bonded societies merge in such a way, the outcome is a land-bonded society
These societies are similar to band societies.
