According to Diamond, archaeological evidence suggests that our transformation from hunter-gatherers to farmers was a disaster whose impact can still be seen today. The transformation brought along unpleasant changes, such as social and sexual inequality, disease, and tyranny. Most people would not believe in this negative view of our transformation from hunter-gatherers to farmers because we are better off than the people of the Middle Ages and cavemen in terms of the availability of food, advanced technology, and longevity. From the progressivist view, hunter-gatherers adopted agriculture because it was a productive way for them to produce more food for less work. The progressivist also believe that agriculture gave us more free time since we don’t have to constantly move around looking for food.
The reason for that was because both groups of people wanted a government to provide social order and economic systems. Thirdy, they both farmed and hunted, because back then, the only way to find a food source was to hunt or farm. Therefore, growing crops and hunting were both part their cultures and style of living. Fourthly, they traded - not only with each other, but with the rest of the world. They traded because they did not have the resources, or capacity to satisfy their own needs and wants.
Mesopotamia was a successful civilization because of it 's farming. I know this beause If they weren 't successful in farming, they couldn 't build up theire civilization. The text stated that the two rivers would bring in silt, which made rich farming land. This in turn, made them need less farmers, so people got other jobs. The text says they built temples and started trading with other villages.
In ancient times, the tribes and civilizations got through life with the technology they had. It was very difficult to even plant a field of corn. These people got their jobs done with less efficient tools, but in today’s world, we have better technology and tools. Document 1 is talking about a plant that had many uses. Some of these uses included being used to fence a field, use as firewood, use as a plate for dinner, use as roof tiles, and to make clothes.
One of these differences between New England and Southern colonies is their Economy. For example Farming, New England did something called Small Substance Farming which is where you farm just enough for your family. The Southern Colonies Plantation Farming witch is farming through the use of industrial servants and slaves they also only grew Tabaco, Rice, Corn, and Wheat. Another difference between the
The number of railroads, canals, and wagon trails on the map are noticeable. The main reason is because the South has less development, compared to the North. I would like to add that the North is way more industrialized than the South is, to be completely honest. The South is pretty much all about agriculture, as where North is pretty much where there is job opportunities. I think these things had a social and economical impact overall.
George Washington Carver's most important legacy is his immense impact on agriculture. Carver did not only help farmers learn more about caring for their crops but he also gave new insights and uses for simple things crops produced. With this Carver even gave new jobs to people as now people had to do things such as make peanut butter from peanut crops. The advancements Carver gave to agriculture opened almost a whole new world to the condition of agriculture at his time. 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.
The land is rocky with hills, not good for farming. People mostly raise cattle and plant in much smaller portions than the south. Adding on, the economy between the two is very different. The south earns most of its wealth from agriculture and selling crops. Farmers grow various types of crops, including cotton, tobacco, rice, sugarcane, and indigo, in large amounts.
They were quite wealthy, but still had to manage their company or trade business. Finally the middle class consisted of mainly hardworking merchants, artisans, and shopkeepers that worked similar hours compared to what a middle class person in would today. The freeholders would work their own land, providing crops to feed their families and sometimes sell on the market(Social and Family Life…). Despite the enormous differences in the amount of work and working conditions between the classes, work was not everything. People would partake in many different leisure activities to pass the
Serfs paid back for what the lord gave them by providing labor, primarily. The specific services asked for included farming fields, caring for livestock, and other tasks on the manor (Nardo 27). The amount of labor that was required of serfs varied from manor to manor and based on the amount of land the serf farmed for himself (Bennett 103). What was common, however, was that serfs owed two types of work to their lord: week-works and boon works (Bennett 106). Week-works were the work that was done on a weekly basis, and boon works were done as extra labor occasionally throughout the year (Bennett 106).
