  • Fish was the most commonly eaten meat among the ancient hunter-gatherers.
  • People from around the world began planting and taking advantage of their region's natural crop and mostly abandoned a lifestyle of foraging to that of agriculture.
  • A crop or food surplus would allow for cities to be created and for people to pursue other occupations outside of agriculture.
  • A widely cited negative effect of the agricultural revolution was the increase in the demand of slaves to work the land.
