Just like the Paleolithic Period, people began to find new advances in technology. It began close to 11,000 BC and ended in between 4500 to 2500 BC, depending on different parts of the world. The reason that people in the Neolithic Era were able to settle down and stay in one spot was because of the new advances in both the agriculture, such as wheat, barley, and even corn in a few places, and in animal mating, including chickens, cows, and pork. These advances gave the Neolithic people a source of food, so they no longer had to chace large game all over the world. When they were able to stay in one place, the people of the Neolithic Period were able to live much longer lives.
They just want to make the most money possible. Family farms on the other hand actually help out a wide variety of people. Not only do the family farms help grow food for the family in charge, but they also grow food for the local markets allowing them to get healthy... ... middle of paper ... ... a “natural pesticide” against, in this situation wheat, the crop-killing bug. This is the advantage that family farms have. Family farms are slowly fading away from the American landscape due to the increasing number of industrialized farms.
(http://ragz-international.com/ancient_civilization.htm) The change to settlement from nomadic living marked the beginning of the Neolithic period. The people now produced food, rather than procuring it, they no longer adapted themselves to their environment, but adapted their environment to them. This involved actions as simple as weeding around food plants, bringing water to the plants during dry periods, and planting seeds so that food grew in a more convenient location. Settled life meant food could be stored as a reserve for times... ... middle of paper ... ...This early farming resulted in the extended kinship networks and economic trade systems that existed as late as the industrial revolution.
In American culture, hunting has always been a way of life. The Native Americans and early American settlers hunted to survive, that is so they did not die of starvation, just in case that is in any way confusing. Today however, puny-minded individuals see it not as a way of life, but as a thirst for blood and murder. In order to survive, men had to hunt to provide food for their families and communities, and if unsuccessful, they would go hungry. Their survival depended upon what they hunted and killed, leaving nothing to waste.
Storing Grain in pits made it possible to survive without moving in the winter months. Around 6,000 B.C. Agriculture was becoming widely used as a primary means of survival. The first evidence of domesticated cattle was also found in this time frame. Primitive civilizations such as Jericho were growing at this time and a series of long distance trade routes were established.
Farming then transitioned into food production that allowed the people to control their crops and produce their own food. The move to the life of the farmer and producer brought advantages however there was an increase in the disadvantages. Elaborating more on population, the reproductive fitness of the people around this time increased. Although there was a large increase of malnourishment and mortality rates, the population still increased. It was still balanced.
It dates from 2,000,000 B.C to 10,000 BC The people of the Paleolithic Period lived simple lives, which consisted primarily of survival. Man's life was simply to hunt, eat, and survive, while the woman’s job was to gather and watch over the children. The people of the Paleolithic Age were mostly nomads. To survive they had to travel everywhere, and follow the migration of animals; as the animals were there primary food source. Whenever they decided to stay, they lived mostly in caves, tree trunks, and those types of shelter.
Although, the farming was becoming increasingly popular in this period(neomatic people) however, this period also witnessed the domestication of wild animals. Since, early agriculture had changed the nomadic life and culture for forever, the domestication of wild animals started at the same time as the domestication of plants. People started domesticating the wild animals for many reason, as they abandon their neomatic lifestyle and begin farming. Goats and sheep were the few of many animals to be early domesticated for, meat, milk and skins. They also started selectively breeding animals for their desire of better milk production and meat.
Hunter-gatherers were people who move... ... middle of paper ... ...made different tools to hunt for animals, and made baskets to store the seeds and roots, and berries they had gathered. Over time, throughout western civilization their greater prosperity and stable reliable food supply meant that people could have more children, and support larger families. Populations started to grow. In the fullness of time, the increased prosperity led to the rise of a hereditary chief or noble class as well. In my view it was like a domino effect one major event lead to another event each one more prosperous for these people.
Kings then arose taking life to county level. Egypt shows up with modern world culture, and technology, which gave a boost for people to do more, than people of the past could have done. People began growing and preparing food to survive, until famine, war, or even diseases, showed themselves to the land. Moving on we go to Rome where technology, culture and food production, again took great leaps. China adds more to culture and other things.
