In the paleolithic times people were nomads. That means that people lived in temporary homes. They were not permanent because they were constantly moving following their livestock. During this time people were hunting. And they learned how to make a fire.
The Neolithic age began about 111,000 years ago. People started to settle in one area. And they also learned how to make tools. Then they started to domesticate animals. Soon the Neolithic population grew. And they slowly became a civilization
civilization happened when the population of a place grows a lot. And then they start trading and doing other jobs. But it can also be helpful to the tribe. Because they can defend themselves more easily.
