Sickle blades and grinding stones emerged because of the rise of agriculture and had made it easier to farm crops. Instead of having wood axes, the Neolithic People now had stone axes which made it easier to cut down forests or areas and get wood easily. This also allowed for shelter to be created more efficiently. These were some major technological changes and advances in tools between the Neolithic and Paleolithic Era. The final major aspect that things had drastically changed was religiously.
As time wears on, everyday lifestyles of peoples around the world evolve and adapt. Mankind has encountered countless changes, one of the biggest being the switch from hunting and gathering to domestication and agriculture as methods of survival. This period of history is referred to as the agricultural revolution. One lifestyle overall surpassing the other is a highly argued upon topic. However, due to a greater diversity of foods available for consumption, a mobile lifestyle, and relative freedom from epidemic diseases that come from larger populations, hunting and gathering bands comparatively enjoyed a standard of living far superior to that of a Neolithic village dweller.
Paleo-Indians also learned to trade ideas and goods with different groups that they encountered when they navigated to the quarries. The Paleo-Indians traded to help themselves and others live a better life, and not for profit and benefits. Archaic peoples, the new term for Native Americans living in the new environments, lived with more supplies of food. There was more food in the environment which helped the Archaic peoples live in a small area. The small area consisted of a large population because the food was found easily.
The 1960’s in the United States were a time of improvement and hope, so why were people in Papua New Guinea still using stone tools? This relates to a bigger, more broad problem: inequality in the world. The world is unequal because some civilizations got head starts. Their geography provided an ideal balance of agriculture and domesticated animals, which made their conditions stable so they could focus on developing immunity to germs, and creating steel. These improvements made their lives easier, and more profitable.
The agricultural revolution was a significant period in the industrial revolution as it developed widely with new and efficient farming techniques which lead to a massive increase in food production. People were now able to leave the farms and move into cities because there was sufficient agricultural production to support life away from the farm. New technologies were invented to meet the growing demand for these products, which lead to the first industrial factories. In the period of agriculture, people saw that it was a time to develop, therefore people started creating tools to help with the efficiency of farming and agriculture, a certain machine which was the plow, which is a device that contains blades that effectively break up the soil, plows created cuts within the soil for the sowing of seeds. Another device that was also created and was a massive upgrade in agriculture was the seed drill that was create by Jethro Tull in the 18th century.The seed drill was a machine than plants drills in rows then covers them, which makes it simpler for the farmers.
The Columbian Exchange of food majorly upgraded the European's diet, not only because it added to the taste, but by also simply increasing society's ability to feed more people. Less and less people had to worry about starving, which was a large factor in the European population growth. Starvation was easily overcome through the transplantation of the New World foods. The exchange of crops strongly affected both the Old World and the New World.When the Europeans
They had very rich soil, which gave humans a reason to settle in mesopotamia and begin farming. People were living in the area called the "Fertile Crescent" to take advantage of the rich soil.. Mesopotamia's rich soil helped humans to settle in one place to farm. So they wouldn't be nomads and go from place to place . This is why I think geography affected early civilization , in many other places civilization didn't begin the best because of its resources the places I named had everything a person need to live and advance in life
With the land warming they were able to modify nature to fit their needs. Using human labor and the tools they developed they were able to start domesticating plants and animals, their communities started to grow. As the population grew, more and more attention was given to the grain harvest, which eventually led to the conscious and systematic cultivation. This led to a population growth, because they were able to produce more food. People started to settle in villages and social relations changed
The Environments shape had a part in forming Native American cultures and civilizations. Native Americans would used the surrounding land around them and the environment to suit their needs, they believed in respecting nature and any changes in it would result in a change for them to. The season determined how crops would grow, they were able to adjust their diets and food gathering skills to survive those changing seasons. Native Americans eventually developed an agriculture system based on: corn, beans, and squash, more commonly known as “three-sister” farming. This diet provided by the clever farming technique resulted in high population densities.
Agriculture allowed for the early humans to settle in one place, mainly near a body of water, so that crops could be properly watered. This action was crucial to Neolithic humans because it was the beginning of a different type of societies. Agriculture development impacted Neolithic societies in the Near East by trade, steady food source, increase in population, social classes, and the rise of civilization began to form during the Agricultural Revolution, consequently changing life of the Neolithic human. Scholars suggest that agriculture started over 10,000 years ago in an area called the Fertile Crescent, in what we now called the Middle East. The environmental change in the Near East was quite successful, providing, necessary weather conditions for certain types of agriculture .Human migration was the result, of the ending of the ice age.
