All throughout history, humans have come up with innovations that have brought both positive and negative changes to the way people live. This all started around 10,000 BCE, when people developed agriculture. The first nomads started off by moving from place to place, hunting and gathering food… but as people developed agriculture, they saved a lot more time. After agriculture developed, the humans learned many things such as farming and taming wild animals for their own use. This time in history was called the Neolithic Revolution… which lasted about 6,000 years, until 4,000 BCE. The big change in the way people got their food and how they lived, resulted to positive and negative changes of human innovations of the Neolithic Revolution. So,
The Neolithic Revolution was a very significant turning point in human history. It was the start of agriculture and the beginning of a settled life for us humans around 10,000 BC. Although several people strongly believe that this was a positive turning point in our history, they all continue to ignore the negative effects it brought along with it. Farming brought on a poor diet, disease, health defects, and inequality between people. That is why the Neolithic Revolution should be considered a negative turning point in human history.
The Neolithic revolution was a period of time that occurred during 10,000 - 9,000 B.C.E. Humans made the transition from hunting and gathering and being nomadic to being sedentary. During the neolithic revolution humans also developed social classes where the people who watched others work were at the top and the people who worked at the bottom. People have different opinions on the shift from hunting and gathering to agriculture during the neolithic revolution. Thinking about all of the things humans received from the neolithic revolution, it was not worth it. Human society would have been better off without the disease, the social classes, and starvation. Therefore, while the neolithic revolution brought many beneficial things to human society such as agriculture, and permanent housing, it brought more harm than good like modern day diseases and social classes.
The Neolithic Revolution took place from around 10,000 B.C.E. to 4000 B.C.E. and was thought to be one of the largest transformations in human culture. The transition in lifestyle centered around the shift from a life of hunting and gathering as the main source of food to a life of agriculture through the cultivation and breeding of animals, plants, and fungi as the main source of food. The planting and growing of crops allowed for a dependable and steady source of food and income for many individuals in several parts of the world. This transition was known as the Agricultural Revolution, a movement enabling more people to put a halt to their nomadic ways and settle in one location. This revolution is so important to the evolution of human
There were changes that occurred from the Paleolithic Period to the Neolithic. Small changes were made in this time, from the culture, to bigger changes like economics, and agriculture. How did man deal with these changes and what kind of impact did it have on society?
The societies of Paleolithic man were far different then that of the Neolithic man. The Old Stone Age societies had no time for other actives then what was necessary to survive. They did not invent many new things, and were constantly moving and changing their environment. Societies in he New Stone Age were a settled people, who constantly
Political, economic, and social conditions have often led to turning points that have changed the course of history for nations and people. The Paleolithic Era and Neolithic Revolution was a turning point that changed the orbit of history for mankind. In Documents 1, 2, and 4, they explain life before the Neolithic Revolution and what changed during the period and provide an analysis of results of the revolution. They introduce food supply and settlement, and civilization and trade.
The Neolithic Revolution made food easily accessible. Document 3 states, “But it means, rather, a state of culture in which food is planted and bred, not hunted and gathered — in which food is domesticated, not wild.” This shows that the Neolithic Revolution was a time in which people moved from
Humans’ lives would be drastically different if it wasn’t for the Neolithic Revolution. All the lifestyle changes in this time period made a drastic change in how individuals lived. However, Paleolithic people were nomads in search of food. Also, no one had specific jobs because everyone’s jobs were focused on hunting and gathering food. During this time period, everything was made of stone because it was an easy to find and bountiful resource.
Prior to living in homes build to with stand the test of time, growing food their food source, and raising animals, humans were nomads who followed their food source around and were hunters and gathers. Although it took many years, from 8000B.C. to 3000B.C. for humans to go from hunters and gathers to a more common day life as we now know it, the result is referred to as the Neolithic Revolution the begins of human civilization. As the people of this time began to settle down and they began to both farm the land and domesticate animals for the better of the community. Along with the development of these communities as for the first time began to create social class among the many different roles they played in their community. Because
Before the Neolithic Revolution, there was nomadic lifestyle of hunting and gathering food for survival. People stayed in one place as long as the sources they needed to survive was present. If sources weren’t available, people would move to another place for survival. Therefore, there was no permanent or final settlement.Due to the discovery of farming, the Neolithic Revolution began. Once the techniques of
Early Neolithic remains found at Catal Hüyük showed similar pathology, in which porotic hypertosis affect approximately 41% of the population (Angel, 1971). In addition, transverse linear hypoplasia markers were common on teeth throughout the population, these are generally indicators of early childhood stresses such as disease or malnutrition (Angel, 1971). From these two sites, it can clearly be seen that the diet composition had a great effect on the health of Neolithic era humans. The excessive amount of skeletal markers that indicate malnutrition can suggest the Neolithic diet lacked the nutrients needed for humans to be healthy. The Alepotrypa skeletal remains had also shown high incidents of osteoarthritis generally located in the spine, this could be an indicator of a physically stress full lifestyle (Papathanasiou, 2005). The stress markers on these bones are very different from early hunter-gatherers who were generally free of dietary and activity influenced diseases (O’Keefe & Cordain, 2004). This comparison is fairly significant as Neolithic individuals had a very different lifestyle from that of the hunter-gatherers. Evidently, early Neolithic individuals likely participated in much more labor intense activities than hunter-gatherers during daily life. Regardless of the causes for dietary and stress related skeletal markers, it can be seen that the Neolithic populations experienced poor health in comparison to hunter-gatherers. Neolithic populations
Many responsibilities come with the job as the clan leader, one of which is where the group should go in the future. At this time, our world is going through a revolution, known as the Neolithic Revolution, where people are abandoning hunting and gathering and are practicing a different technique called farming. To farm, we must all stop moving from place to place but stay put in one place. You place seeds into the soil and plants grow after time. As the clan leader, I choose to relinquish the old hunting and gathering method and participate in the Neolithic Revolution.
The Neolithic Revolution was basically when people went from hunters and gatherers, to farmers.This happened in the region of a place that is now called the Fertile Crescent about what we think happened in the time period 11,000-8,000 B.C.E.The Fertile Crescent wasn’t necessarily the place where the Neolithic Revolution began (even though it was) it was just the place where soil was really good and animals and plants were abundant. During the Neolithic Revolution hunters and gatherers would find place like the Fertile Crescent( or any other place) and find animals there. Now they have two options stay a for a while and let the animals reproduce or do what they usually do and just kill them and move on. So they looked around and probably thought
The people in the Neolithic Age wasn’t as primitive as I thought they were. First, they were able to create a copper axe. Although I thought that the copper axes weren’t created until a few years before the Bronze Age started, the hunter had one at hand and it seemed like he created it by himself. However, it may have been just the tribe were the hunter was or maybe the hunter was a prodigy for his time. Second, it also surprised me that the hunter was carrying some kind of mushrooms that it may have been used for medice, so this means that they or he was able to research about medicine in such a primitive age. However, who knows if there were actually another tribe more advanced than the hunter’s one. Maybe his tribe was advanced or maybe
