Agriculture gave way to sedentary living; this changed the way humans interacted with each other, leading to civilization. The steady food source allotted humans the opportunity to grow in population without the worry of starvation. Social classes were developed and allowed different job for humans, therefore allowing humans to think about advancements in technology instead of hunting and forging. Trading began an economic revolution. According to scholars research shows that this started in the Near East, therefore the first major impact was to the near
The people of Mesoamerican had many talents that for that time were very advanced. They used many tools to live but there most valuable tool was there brain. The people knew exactly how to survive due to trying to survive. In document 1,5, and 7 they showed us how they farmed, planted, got water to wear they need to get to. The 5th document tells us that they had a irrigation system in there city-state so that they could supply everyone with water and help farmed grow crops.
Because of their ability to produce and distribute surplus crops, the Incas were able to expand their territory from their capital in Cuzco, to most of the Andes. Another factor that helped in expansion was their vast network of roads and bridges. The Incas created a terraced irrigation system that would provide water from the mountains to their crops. The Spanish also wiped out the Incas in the sixteenth century. 5.)
When it came to farming they figured out ways to get more food. This all happened while they still listened to their ruler, traded things, and sold slaves. They were hard working people who cared about their religion,agriculture,and social structure. History should say that they were religious people who did sacrifice,believed in multiple gods, and built temples. Sacrifice made a huge role in Aztec society, they believed that they needed
Due to fertile soil, natural rivers, and location near the equator, farming crops was always an option for any early civilization because of the Neolithic Revolution. Along with the farming of crops, early civilizations were able to domesticate animals. With the domesticated animals, it provided an additional stable food source for the civilization, which did not rely as much on the soil and temperature like with farming crops. In addition, the Neolithic Revolution allowed for the specialization of labor. For example, if someone was better at farming crops, they would be able to spend most of their time farming crops; others who were better with farming animals would also be able to
The role of the elites in the Mesopotamian society was to amass as much wealth as they could. Learning to write was a skill made for elites to increase their power. (Pg.40) They ran their societies just beneath the priests and king. They owned massive amounts of land and had free men and women tend to it by giving them rations of food or they would force slaves to complete the task. (Pg.39) The role of the elites in Egypt was to assist the king.
After the crusades, Medieval Europe reached a major turning point. Not only were there new ideas and technological improvements all around, but a revolution in commerce and trade lead to a lessening of feudalism and the growth of towns. Before this turning point, many people were serfs, people who went unpaid and worked hard every day, and where everything they owned was not theirs, but their lord’s. After this major turning point, however, improvements in agriculture meant that people were able to grow more food than they needed, and people were able to trade their surplus of food for goods they needed. This growth in trade consequently led to a growth in towns, a place where people could live and buy/trade goods.
26) They would be technologically advanced because Equality finds more manuscripts and can create more technology with the manuscripts. According to Rand "May knowledge come to us".(Pg. 90). There would be a lot of hard workers because Equality is going to have to farm and hunt to produce food for his family. According to Rand "Here, on this mountain, I and my sons and my chosen friends shall build our new land and our fort.
In an effort to sustain one of the highest population densities in history, the Mayans transformed the land. They removed nearly all of the forest and replaced it with agricultural crops. The lack of rain helped raise temperatures on land. When energy from the Sun reaches the ground, it either heats the ground or it causes water
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
