In the paleolithic times, people where nomads. The men in the family would go off hunting while the women stay home, take care of the children, and collect nuts and berries. While the women were collecting, the children would sometimes get snatched away by some animal. But that just means there is one less person to feed am I right?
Developing new jobs
Gradually, people started to figure out other ways to get food like agriculture and domestication. They found out that instead of gathering wild crops they could grow them and tell where a good place to plant and harvest them is. They also started taming animals so that instead of hunting they can raise their own so they could get more out of them.
I can make the tools you need.
One major change was when people started making more permanent homes. In many areas, people used mud bricks, tree branches. and stones packed together, to build round or rectangular houses. inside where several rooms that had been places that where dug underground such as storage and kitchens.
Another major change from the paleolithic times was when people started to develop new jobs. A few different types of jobs people became where weavers, basket makers, toolmakers, farmers and traders.
Another major change from the paleolithic times where that the village dwellers learned to cooperate to do tasks very quickly.Living in communities made things go more efficiently. People could divide up the work of producing food and other things they needed. While some people would plant crops, others would build the houses and make tools.
good morning neighbors!
I will do the farming
One final major change was when the growth of trading started. Traders would travel hundreds of miles to get resources for their community. The trader would most often look for obsidian (black glass found on volcanic mountains used for making knife blades, arrow heads, and mirrors), flint, or Hematite(a red ore that makes your cheeks and lips redder.)
