I got hurt and rushed back home. I didn't get any food
The baby is starving, we haven't eaten for 2 days!

The Revolutionary Idea
We should just take one for our family and feed it until its ready and that way since its a baby it can attack us
Hmm what are these dots that came from the plants, let me bring them home and water them
Let's go back!
The Beginning Of Agriculture
I got a ripe one!
I need to milk the cow
What do I want for Dinner?
Back then people were nomads. They didn't have permanent shelters because they had to travel to hunt animals for food. It was very dangerous for the nomads they were dying by dehydration, malnutrition, sickness, injuries and more. The men hunted for animals and got hurt often, the woman would pick food and would bring her kids along, sometimes the women would pick poison plants and feed them too her families and they found out it was poison after eating it and dying.
Yeah let's wait till dad gets home.
Ready for dinner?
One day a group of men went hunting to get food and came across an idea to bring the baby animal home and put it in a cage and domesticate the animal and feed it until it grows up and then they kill it for food instead of going out and hunting resulting in injuries, this caused less death and less injuries for the men. As for the women they came across some seeds and wanted to see what happens when they brought it home and watered it, it grew into plants and it was easier to pick it from home.
As they succeeded to bring the animals home and domesticate it, they would feed it and then kill it for food. As for the seeds they sprouted into fruits and vegetables, it would be easier for the women to pick it near their new shelter so their kids won't go wandering around and causes less poison venom and vicious attacks.
hmm should I trade?
Ill trade you seeds for that pig.
As agriculture started it was easier to call a place home for the nomads. Because they now had surplus of food in the area they would build shelters. Near their new permanent shelter they would have their fruits and crops and vegetable and their domesticated animals.
As the nomads could finally have permanent shelter they would build it in a area near each other. They used teamwork , for example 2 tool workers would make more tools together than by themselves, this is more efficient and quick than making it alone. The community would also trade.
Hello. Wanna go explore
As the community formed they began trading. For example, some men would trade meat for tools . They would also go overseas to trade for flint and obsidian. They would also trade seeds and plants. As trading went on their community got more local and more and more people new each other to build a great community.
