These weapons were used for hunting and defending themselves. Tools used by the Native Americans were rock hammers, deer antlers, sinew, animal tendons, and knives made out of flint rock. Tools were used to build houses and weapons. They also used tools to build other tools. The Native Americans were good at making baskets and pottery.
Let’s take a moment to look at what hard manual labor would be without animals, you would have to plow the field by hand, plant each seed by hand, and then when it was ready you would have to harvest the crop by hand. This is what the Europeans had to do, until Columbus traveled
back then, though agriculture was a striving practice, many people were not original in the way they grew crops, and also didn't give much attention to the conditions of the crops, it's soil or it's plants. Carver introduced the practice of crop rotation, a process
What are the differences that made farming society so different from hunter-gatherer’s society? Hunter-gatherers and farming societies had totally different lifestyles. Hunter-gatherers moved very often, because there was not enough food in the same place for a long time. Farmers had their farms so there was no purpose of moving. Since they had permanent houses, they could storage their food, so it could be regulated.
For example, the potato pieces were measured and cut using a standard ruler. As a result the length of the potato pieces were inaccurate by 0.1-0.2 cm. This could have caused misinterpretations and inconsistency in the data. Another limitation while conducting this experiment was that our working station and storage stations were different. As a result, once we finished working, we had to move the beakers containing the sugar solution and potato pieces to a secluded and secure location to avoid disturbance.
Food stamps are provided to help Americans who struggle with food insecurity. People that are not sure where there next meal is coming from are given help so they can get by in difficult times. Maine's Governor, Paul LePage has lobbied that food stamps should ban the purchasing of candy and sugary drinks. The purpose of food stamps is not violated by this restriction, candy and soda hardly count as a nutritious, filling meal. However this bill was shot down by the Federal Government, LePage's response was to threaten to scrap the food stamp program if these new regulations are not included.
They were early hominids, which were in groups of up to 50; tribal society; hunters and gatherers, which made crude stonecutting tools (Neolithic vs Paleolithic, n.d.). Later they developed choppers and hand axes. They were able to have mental images of animals and they used their imagination to their advantage. The art was naturalistic animal art, and most of the art was found in caves. Neolithic cultural and stylistic features of art was started around 9,000 to 6,000 BCE, where they were living a stable life of village farmers and herders.
Villages that were near flint mines could trade very easily, the flint mined was used to make very sturdy axes due to flint being very thick and tough. Throughout the communities, the women had major roles they had to fulfil. The women had to gather crops, they worked in the fields, and also they raised children. As people began to transition to a sedentary lifestyle, the men began to take over the work force including all of the heavy work, the plowing, hoeing, and land clearing. Through the use of art, they have found that the social aspect of women began to decline as the transition continued to sedentary lifestyle.
There was also a legislative council that was referred to as ‘Boule’ that comprised of 500 councilors. “500 councilors were chosen each year, 50 from each tribe drawn from every part of Attica.”(Brand, 2010:19) Another group who was not allowed to serve politically but only economically was the Metics. They were free foreigners or “resident aliens” as Brand put it. How were the two city-states similar in their governmental structures? Both Athens and Sparta required political contributors to be male, citizens and free.
And, at first, I let her go on with what she was doing out of sheer curiosity on my part. I had thought she might be gathering these things for her magic, yet another pathetic attempt to create a spell or a potion that could get rid of me. But after a while… I realized that she wasn’t collecting these things for her witchcraft at all. She was actually gathering food for herself. To think, she had thought that she was going to get away with trying to use my forest, My Mountain, as her own personal grocery store right under my nose.
