The smartest idea since well, anything! (Revolution, Neolithic Age and domestication ).
Lets move these and put them in the ground next to our shelter!
I'm so happy we have food!
In paleolithic times people were nomads. They did not know about agriculture. Because of this there was the equivalent to zero food.(Basically). Natural disasters wiped the food clean. Water is dirty. It was hard to survive.
Jobs were divided by gender so men did the hunting and women did the kid watching and food scraping. When men did the hunting they usually came back wounded and hurt,barely escaping with their lives.
Specialized Dream Jobs
This is great! I love this job.
I made a sickle!
People had the idea to take seeds from other places and put them closer to their shelters. The crops grew and they were nomads no more. people domesticated animals so they could eat them for food or milk them.
People started to make permanent shelters because the caves were small and cramped and cold at night. The houses let in natural light as well. It also helped with their job.
Let's make houses!
Instead of just having farmers for carers the town's people also were basket makers, toolmakers and weavers (ect.). People could do whatever they wanted for jobs and it was easier on everyone.
Because there was no currency, people traded for other things they did not have. For example you might trade some fruit and a basket for a hoe. Sometimes trades were fair other times not so much.
