Most people in the Neolithic were semi-sedentary. Their primitive agricultural techniques would quickly exhaust the soil and the people would be forced to move somewhere else in order to find suitable land for agriculture. Some notable exceptions to this were areas in the Middle East, Egypt and Mesopotamia (for example, we are pretty sure Jericho was inhabited throughout the entire year).
We have permanent settlements all over Europe from approx 5000 BC, and if I'm not wrong, a couple of thousand of years before in the Danubian plane.
