Culture in the anthropological sense is a shared belief, value, attitude and expectation about appropriate ways to behave in any society that are held by the member of a social group.
Culture and civilization are inseparable, to this end, if a culture is progressing, its leads to civilization, so that no development project of any given race can ignore the essential characteristics of the natural and cultural value.
Culture on the other hand is a powerful human tool for survival, but it is a fragile phenomenon. Culture consist of belief, behaviour, objectives and other characteristics common to the member of a particular group of society. Though, people and group define themselves, conform to society’s shared values, and contribute to society. Thus, culture include many societal aspect, such as language, custom, value, norms, morals, rules, tools, technologies and institutions.

So therefore, culture and society are intricately related, culture consists of the objects of the society, while society consists of the people who shared a common culture
