Men were generally responsible for hunting, warfare and interaction with outsiders and had more visible and public roles. On the other hand, women managed the internal operations of the community. They usually engaged in agriculture, food production and gathering of food stuffs and rearing of the children. Women also had many additional tasks that were essential for the survival of the tribes. Historically, they made weapons and tools, took care of the roofs of their homes and often helped men in hunting and fishing.
Ancient Egypt was a complex civilization because it had all of the important indicators for a complex society. Indicators started with the hunting and gathering. Then they started settling on river valleys such as the Nile because it was fertile farming land. They begin to farm. This made the population go up because they were selling more goods.
This was the theory that all humans were together in East Africa after the ice age instead of in different places across the earth. Then from that are something called cultural diffusion happened which is the spread of language, culture, food and traditions through trade, migration and warfare. Another theory of the Neolithic Revolution is Howells Theory.
Mesopotamians and Egyptians believed that deities intervene again really in human affairs and that proper cultivation of the Gods was an important community responsibility. Before the creation of Egypt, Mesopotamia inhabitants have had the idea of worship in their lives for decades. With majority of the population of Mesopotamia being polytheistic (meaning believing in more than one “God”) there were many “gods” that were based on natural objects. One noted example of these worshipped “gods” was the “god of air” named Enlil, which he was considered one of the most powerful “god” in the Sumerian States. With having more than one “god” being worshipped by the people, many religions have been created in the future to be carried on to the other society, Egypt.
Throughout the Preclassic period the Maya adapted to diverse environments. The diverse environments provided opportunities for specialized crafters. The products that were created were than used to trade for other goods. The Maya settlements began to grow in not only size, but complexity as well. During the Middle Preclassic Maya society saw increased social and political complexity.
The Mexica Empire was a newly formed entity and many enmities remained between the recently subjugated groups and the Mexica. Cortes proved extremely capable of utilizing this enmity to gain the support of indigenous communities. This support came in numerous forms, such as providing the supplies that the Spanish needed to sustain themselves and launch their attack on the Mexica. This aid also came in the form of a massive amount of manpower, both for labor and as warriors. In this way the Spanish were neither as isolated nor as outnumbered as is popularly portrayed.
Communities are heavily built upon trading goods and services; community bonds are shown during times of sorrow such as funerals. Writing and literacy are common, and access is available to the majority of the world’s population. The Neolithic Revolution pushed society into the socially advanced world that exists
The Paleolithic period of the Stone Age began about 2.5 to 2 million years ago, marked by the earliest use of tools made of chipped stones. The Paleolithic period ended at different times in different parts of the world. The Neolithic age is the period of human culture that began about 10,000 years ago in the Middle East and later in other parts of the world. It is characterized by the launch of farming and the domestication of animals, the development of crafts, and the making of polished stone tools. During the Stone Age, civilization had not yet begun.
It rose independently in at least seven different areas including southwest Asia, New Guinea, east Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, eastern United Sates, central Mexico, and South America. Different forms of agriculture and domestication were being practiced in these different areas depending on the geographic climate of the region. The Neolithic Revolution is also known as the Agricultural Revolution because of the transition from a hunter-gatherer lifestyle to one of agricultural and settlement. Agriculture and sedentism go hand-in-hand. An agricultural lifestyle requires the establishment of a new ecosystem, which also requires permanent settle in one place for extended periods of time.
