  • Hunting and Gathering
  • We're Hunting and Gathering
  • Tools and Technology
  • We have tools! YAY!
  • The Use of Fire
  • We're sitting down, socializing, and scaring off predators!
  • For tens of thousands of years, mankind survived by being nomadic. Nomads are highly mobile people who moved from place to place foraging for new sources of food. Being nomadic helped mankind survived for a long time, but left very little time to do other things other than surviving, this in-turn made it hard to develop new advances in technology.
  • The Neolithic Revolution
  • I specialize in making jewelry!
  • After some time, humans started to develop tools. This tools helped process the game and the plants that they were able to find and also allowed them to carry more food on them. Some tools include: Spears, which enabled them to kill at longer distances and digging sticks which allowed the gatherers to pry plants loose from their roots for food. There was a technological revolution in which over 100 different tools were invented using stone, bone, and wood.
  • Domestication
  • I'm raising animals in a colosseum because someone couldn't find a better background!
  • The creation of fire helped continue the advancement of mankind in many ways.The creation of fire brought people together as a place of gathering. Fire also provided many things like a way to cook food, create light, and scare away predators. Being able to cook food allowed the people to be healthier, which in turn increases their brain size, strength, energy, and production, which helped further the evolution of mankind.
  • Slash and Burn Farming
  • The Neolithic Revolution helped shift the hunter and gatherer lifestyle to a society where producing their own food helped them switch to different objectives. The switch from focusing on only surviving to producing their own food allowed them to have more time to do other things such as developing new communities built up for tons of people that specialized in certain professions. Before people lived in bands of 25 to 70 but now that there is no more need to be nomadic, this allowed towns to form. The success of these communities were possibly due to the temperatures and climate of the time, which were adequate for growing their crops, and the steady supply of food.
  • Domestication helped fuel the growth of mankind. Because people in past generations have done so much with the animals, being nomads and such, they were able to convert wild animals to domesticated, which is the taming of animals, over a long period of time. This allowed for them to be able to stay in one place like a town because their food supply wouldn’t be wandering the land. Having a food supply present meant that their time could be spent doing other things like having a specialized skill which will later lead to villages growing and prospering.
  • Slash and burn farming was yet another great achievement that allowed for the further advancement in mankind. Slash and burn farming worked by cutting down grasses, trees, and other plants, then burning that plant material, creating fertile land and clearing a way for plants to be seeded. Farmers would plant crops in one place for a year or two, then move to another piece of land and would continue to repeat this process. This farming allowed for a steady food supply within the village.
  • Man this land is sure gonna be fertile!
