Presentation Transcript

  1. Before the Neolithic Revolution • Paleolithic Age – “Old Stone” Age • Hunters-gatherers – also known as foragers • No extra food (will not survive a disaster) • Small groups (not enough food to support a larger population) • Men hunted, women gathered • Nomadic – moved to follow their food source • Equal social status • Everyone has same role and same materials

  2. The “New Stone” Age • Neolithic = “New Stone” • Development of Agriculture • It took thousands of years • Humans no longer relied on hunting and gathering to meet food demands • Nomadic groups become sedentary • Lived in one place/settled • Patriarchal- males dominate • Metal tools are developed– bronze, copper, iron

  3. Farming • Slash-n-Burn farming • Clears fields and prepares them for planting • Ashes enrich the soil • Food Surplus • Humans can stay when harvest is bad • Leads to specialized workers • Supports a larger populations – cities begin to form

  4. Domestication • Selectively choosing the best qualities of plants and animals to benefit humans • Pastoralism– herding animals • Including the raising and breeding of livestock • Examples: • Plants – wheat, barley, peas, and beans • Animals – goats, sheep, and cattle
