before farming in the Paleolithic Age the people were hunter gatheres, meaning they had to look and hunt for food.
but in the Neolithic Age the people farmed and domesticated animals. they planted crops and used animals for there products
this change was an important change because hunting was dangerous, And if they couldn't find any food they would starve. When Neolithic people invented farming it was harder for them to go hungry and the Neolithic people didnt have to move around so they could build permanent shelters
