Oops! I'm sorry but this is harder to control than a spear.
Surplus Of Food
Don't ea- Oh my! What should I do with you!
Once upon a time ago, going back 2 million years before now, there were early humans living in the Paleolithic times when people were nomads meaning that they were people who wander around for looking for food. Women collected berries and nuts while men were hunting. Life was very hard and dangerous because one of their problems are that if you didn't bring back food, you would starve. Another bigger issue is that people were dying off and the population would be getting smaller because hunting proved to be hard and sometimes life threatening.
Here you go little piggy!
Then sometime in 8000 B.C.E. , people discovered farming and slowly learned to farm and domesticate animals which is called agriculture. Agriculture is when you are farming, growing crops and domesticating and domesticating means the taming and use of those animals for food and clothing. This affected them because now they don't have to go out and hunt. This meant that they could always have a good source of food and they didn't have to risk their own lives to feed themselves and their family.
Here you g- Oh my goodness why do you have to be so destructive, child!
Before the agriculture revolution, people would get food by hunting which provided nothing but trouble, death and injury. As the agriculture revolution started to change lives, people started becoming less dependent on the things that they used to do like hunting or gathering food. They started growing crops and domesticating animals which led to the surplus of food. They finally had control over their food and they will always have food.
Laws For Communities
In the paleolithic times, people were nomads meaning that they wandered for food. This meant that they could only build permanent shelters after the agriculture revolution. The permanent shelters were made up of mainly mud bricks and sometimes rocks or branches to make the walls and roof stronger. These permanent shelters gave the people who lived in this age more shelter against the harsh weather and wild animals. These shelters made it possible to have communities of people and it also gives the opportunity of learning new ways to cook food.
Something else that was introduced to the early humans in the neolithic times is that they began to trade. People mainly traded for items that they don't have in their area. They wanted materials that would strengthen the quality of the things that they made. Traders would walk, rode donkeys or sailed ships hundreds of miles to trade with people. Things that people traded for are flint, obsidian and beauty products of their time. This form of interaction with other humans brought them together and they could share ideas with each other.

GOO GOO GA GA
As permanent shelters developed, people started making houses next to each other and pretty soon some towns started developing and now there came another issue. People would start to steal from each other. This meant that they needed laws and leaders had to be appointed to make those laws and lead people. There are punishments and some of them include cutting off hands for stealing, throwing then into fire if a house is burning and they steal from the burning house and burned at a stake if you were stealing at a church.
