The society we live in did not helix up instantly; human societies have changed slowly over many epochs. However, throughout history, technological developments have sometimes brought about dramatic change that has propelled human society into its next age. According to sociologists, a society is a group of people with common territory, interaction, and culture. Social groups consist of two or more people who interact and identify with one another. CliffNotes stated, “Although humans have established many types of societies throughout history, sociologists and anthropologists (experts who study early and tribal cultures) usually refer to six basic types of societies, each defined by its level of technology.” They are: • Hunting and gathering societies.
Bodies of the deceased were no longer burned, but placed in a grave along with their possessions. The presence of bronze swords or horse carriages in the graves, as well as the abundance of fortified settlements might indicate the presence of a warrior-like culture (Ó hÓgáin 2009: 11). The Hallstatt period roughly begins in the 8th century BC and lasts until 5th century BC, when it is replaced by the La Tène culture. The Hallstatt period introduced several innovations in the central Europe, such as horse-riding equipment and wagons. Perhaps the most prominent example of the Hallstatt culture is the humongous burial mounds probably build for the aristocrats (Cunliffe 1999: 53).
Furthermore, the nomadic people in those two regions caused lots of rebellions. First, the civilization and agriculture in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia were mainly spreading from the Nile River and the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers, those rivers bred the agriculture and supported human’s everyday lives on both two regions. There are several evidences support this point. “The Mesopotamian civilizations steadily expanded from their roots in the fertile valley between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers throughout their centuries of existence.” ( Stearns, Adas, Schwartz and Gilbert, World Civilizations:The Global Experience, Combined Volume, 34) This evidence shows that the geographic impact influenced a lot on Mesopotamia’s agriculture and its civilization. Meanwhile, the geographic location of Nile River also had a great impact on Ancient Egypt.
“The Importance of the Neolithic Revolution” is an article written by William Howells that focuses in on what the Neolithic Revolution was like all over the world. Also the definition of single site theory zeros in on what the Neolithic Revolution was like in one place. These two theories contradict and oppose each other. One theory of the Neolithic Revolution was single site theory. This was the theory that all humans were together in East Africa after the ice age instead of in different places across the earth.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is the oldest story known to mankind, being written on Sumerian clay almost five thousand years ago (Garone). Since the story was originally known orally, the culture and themes from The Epic of Gilgamesh must have existed long before it was finally inscribed (Mark 4). Having known this, the cultures and themes can be compared to today’s society, discovering about how they have shifted and evolved, and also observe how they are similar. The ancient days of Gilgamesh has brought culture that has greatly influenced today’s society. Because Gilgamesh was set around the time of late Babylonian or early Sumerian society, the Babylonian and Sumerian cultures also play a role in shaping the world into what is is today (Mark).
The Paleolithic Era or The Old Stone Age dates back from 30,000 BCE to 10,000 BCE. The Paleolithic Era was known to have made some of the first forms of art. Humans began to create self expressive and abstract items made of stone or ivory. This art includes cave paintings, figurines,and jewelry. Throughout Paleolithic life, people would use their art
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.
There are many similarities and differences between the early civilizations of the Middle East and India. The early Middle East civilizations will include Mesopotamia and Egypt. Mesopotamia was founded in 3300 BC, and Egypt was founded around 3000 BC. India was founded around 2500 BC. So these civilizations were founded all around the same time.
The word civilization derives from the Latin word ‘civils’. In the 18th century this word was used to distinguish the behavior of the people. It is characterized by social stratification, urban development and symbolic communication forms. In recent years the definition of this term has changed, it commonly refers to human societies with technological development and high level of societies. Today every person has a different understanding of civilization.

Then they would move to were their game went. When they were doing all that the learned how to plant crops corn beans, and squash.

Nomadic Indians moved from places to places nomadic family’s would build a house that would move very easily that could withstand any type of weather.
But when they got their own land, they really became “farmers” this time. In the other way, this policy directly increased the average earnings for every farmer. (Sowards)Also, this policy made farmers felt more confidence for their future life since they have their own land, they don’t need to worried about lost job based on how much they plant, instead, they can concentrate on how to plant crops more productive. Another policy made by the government that helped the progress on American farmers ' individual opportunity on land distribution was the Dawes Act in 1887. The Dawes Act is an act that the government directly took over Indians ' land and divided into allotments for the Indians.
The Archaic Indians were the Indians that roamed the United States after the Ice Age. Archaic culture, any of the ancient cultures of North and South America that developed by Paleo- Indian traditions and led to the adoption and agriculture. Archaic cultures are defined by a group of common characteristics rather than a particular time period or location; Mesoamerica, Archaic cultures that existed from approximately 8,000-2,000BC. The primary characteristic of Archaic cultures is a change in substance and lifestyle; their paleo-indians pressures more highly nomadic, specialized hunters and gatherers who relied on few species of wild plants and game, but Archaic peoples lived in larger groups, were sedentary for part of the year, and partook
Anthropologists study human cultures all throughout time and history, Archeologists look for and record artifacts and sites where early humans used to be, Paleontologists study a wide variety of fossils. 2. Prehistory began at the dawn of human life while history began around 3000 BC when humans started using writing. 3. During the Paleolithic age, humans were still hunter-gatherers and humans were migrating all over the world, Paleolithic art was comprised primarily of paintings.
