Back in the Paleolithic age, I had to move from place to place because I hunted and followed my food.
Oof. What a hard not life you had, you had to move place to place not being able to work on other skills like farming your own food, or trading for materials you didn't have to make better materials.
It must be a cave... right? Predictable...
Let's go to my shelter instead I'll give you some food!
Wait... did we just walk through a pathway that took us like, 50 million years in the future to my house?..... I'm worried.
How come your house is so... AWESOME! It looks like it would protect you from harsh weather, there's lots of food growing, you don't have to move house to house, and you could stay safe from dangerous animals! *Whisper* I'm jealous! *Whisper*
Back in Paleolithic times, people would move shelters from caves to triangle shaped shelters, following their food. Once they began taming animals, and growing their own crops, though, the Neolithic people would stay in one place.
When people found out about agriculture, they improved their skills, such as improving housing, growing their own food, and focusing on improving their skills in subjects such as tool making, weaving, and working together.
In the Neolithic Age, people would make houses with cooking holes, and food storing holes. The houses were made of mud bricks, sometimes even stones or branches to strengthen the walls and roof, and would last for a long time.
Yes, well ever since we found out about agriculture, such as growing crops and taming animals, the only thing we needed was a stable housing. Now we don't move around, or really come in small groups anymore.
