Ancient Humanity with Pete the Roman Soldier
By alexosity, Updated
yeah its pretty good
Hello! I am Pete. I am here to show you how humanity used to be, back before you and I ever even existed!
Though ancient people were nomadic, meaning they didn't stay anywhere for long, they usually lived in places like this, in groups of of 10-40. We also domesticated animals, like wolves, to help us with hunting and gathering the food we ate.
After a few thousand years of hunting and gathering, something big happened. Some seeds were dropped at a seasonal campsite. When they returned next year, there were plants where the seeds used to be! This sparked a revolution of agriculture!
With a surplus of food, people could now live in larger populations, and, more importantly, stay in one spot! Villages and towns sprung up all over the world! This led to large civilizations, like the ones we see today.
Thanks to agriculture, now people didn't need to be hunters anymore. People could be potters, soldiers,or scribes! Scribes were people who used language to write things down, like storages, taxes, or laws.
In the next few thousand years, technology, religion, and the population of humans grew like a wildfire. 7 billion humans now populate Earth, and that number is rapidly growing. Thanks for exploring ancient Earth with me, Pete!
