The Native Americans would use every part of the animals they hunted. For instance furs were used for blankets and clothing, The meat was used to eat. The bones were used for tools and crafts. Parts of the animals called sinew was used like rope to tie things together. They traded with other Native American tribes with the stuff they made.
Because, Dark Age was only affected in Europe as dark because of the church. But, history books name the whole world with same age “Dark Age”. The rest of the world was not Christian. Therefore, no one can claim that the world was like Europe which even Europe was not that bad compared what they invented in arts, philosophy etc. Besides, Islam world had its Golden Age, as history books tell.
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.
Metal tools and new weapons were created by the nomads to use for farming and fighting against the other villages. Also, plows were made for farming which made it so much easier for the nomads to get soil ready for planting
This was the beginning of our humanity. Thus began the Paleolithic Stone Age (Old Stone Age) that lasted from two millions years ago to 30,000 years before the present time. That is a long time span where our ancestors utilized the same kind of tools. But at about 30,000 years ago, their stone tool repertoire began to change, becoming smaller with finely carved stone microliths and thin bone needles for sewing hide for clothing. These lighter spears were made by older Homo sapiens peoples that had left Africa 100,000 years ago.
As the author of the text has said, “Isn’t it amazing thought that, one day, a prehistoric man… must have realised that meat from wild animals was easier to chew if it was held over a fire?” (Gombrich 6-7) These tools that were made unintentionally from the primitive people, opened an era of technological achievements. Tools were made accidently as prehistoric men tried to live more comfortably. Because of the positive progress in technology, “when we are talking, or eating some bread, using tools or warming ourselves by fire, we should remember those early people with gratitude, for they were the greatest inventors of all time.” (Gombrich
In the Paleolithic era that preceded the Neolithic era and revolution, farming and domestication of animals were virtually nonexistent. To obtain food, families had to relocate as the herds of wild animals migrated; they also were forced to relocate when the vegetal supply was depleted in their area. The vast majority of the population consisted of hunters and gathers, so the tools of that time period were used for hunting and gathering purposes. These tools were simple stone tools made by chipping away at one stone with another stone. Although writing with an alphabet system had not entered society, there is evidence of Paleolithic artwork such as carvings of women and animals and cave drawings.
The Neolithic age was a period in the developments of human technology, starting in some parts of the Middle East around 10,000 BCE, and which later spread to other parts of the world. It is also considered as the last part of the Stone Age. The Neolithic Revolution, which is also called the Agricultural Revolution, is the transition of human cultures from the lifestyle of hunting and gathering, to agriculture and settlement, thus increasing the ability to sustain a larger population. Domestication of Plants Domestication is the process of adapting wild plants and animals for use by humans. These can be used to make different resources for human consumption and use, such as food, clothing, medicine, etc.
They carried water to their crops by hand. They made farm tools from wood and animal bones. Over the centuries, ancient farmers devised better technology. Ancient Middle Easterners learned to breed sheep to produce different colors of wool. The ancient Chinese learned how to grow more rice using irrigation techniques.
