What if we were to plant food to eat so we didn't have to move around.
Good idea lets also breed animals and create permanent structures.
You can't do that.
Nomads were people who traveled from place to place hunting animals without a permanent home. They also painted in the caves that they temporarily lived in, creating artifacts. Nomads lived about 4,000-10,000 years ago.
Agriculture and Taming Animals
I'm so glad that because of farming and animal taming, we have a stable food source.
People soon discovered that staying in one place and forming a society would give them many benefits such as agriculture and trading. This happened about 2000 BC. This is called the Agricultural Revolution.
One benefit of living in society is they now had a government to create and enforce fair rules for their society.

Now that they had tamed animals and crops, they always had a stable food source, and didn't have to hunt for food anymore.
Most ancient societies lived by rivers, this helped them because they could grow crops there and were protected from enemies.
Because societies lived in one place, other societies knew where they were allowing societies to trade with other societies. one benefit of this is, when there was a famine where one society lived, they could trade their valuables for food that another society has because their society is not in a famine.
