The first big change agriculture brought was the use of Permanent Shelter.
In many areas, people used mud bricks stacked together to build houses that we're round or rectangular in shape. Some with the help of stone and tree branches. These were some of the permanent shelters in the Neolithic Age.
These "houses" were temporary shelters because hunter gatherers we're Nomads who had to move often.
In the Paleolithic Age, people had to live in caves or rough like, tent structures.
These buildings helped people to form larger communities. In the Paleolithic Age, people wandered from 20-60 people. As people began growing food, they settled near farms. As a result their were grown cities like Jericho and Catalhuyok.
The development of permanent shelter was important in several ways. Houses gave people protection from crazy weather, vicious animals, and gives comfort.
Village workers learned how to work on a task quicker. Larger communities could defend themselves more easily against enemies. Now that most of their basic needs we're met, they could have more energy for more fun activities. As a result, towns and villages blew up.
When these towns expanded people could divide work up more elaborately. While some people worked on fields, others built houses or tools.
