During paleolithic times people thought that the men were the most brave and strong. Because of that the men went out to hunt and either didn't come back or came back injured. While the men were out doing their job the woman were busy watching the kids and making sure they were safe from all the wild animals that lurked around waiting for food.
The Affect of Trading
I'll trade you a ear of corn for a couple sticks to build my house.
Now that we have our own crops I don't have to go hunting anymore!
Since they had discovered farming/growing their own food, it made it easier to have permanent homes. Once other people found out about farming they started to build up their house and more and more people were arriving. Although, not everybody found out about farming at the same time. Farming/producing your own food stretched out for thousands of years until everybody started to farm.
Permanent Shelters and New jobs
Before they had discovered producing their own food they didn't have a stable food supply. Some days they had just barely enough food and others they didn't even have enough to feed the whole family. As time went on people had found different ways to hunt and gather plants such as finding out which seed provided them with the most food and learning to raise different animals.
Surplus at Last
Before they had discovered farming and domestication of animals, trading was very uncommon. Although, after they discovered both those things their inventory grew and they were beginning to realize that they had time to go trading. Usually they traded for things that they didn't have in the area they lived in and trading eventually became a job.
During the paleolithic times families never had permanent shelters because the hunters were nomads; meaning people who moved often while following animals to hunt down. After they had built their permanent shelters they noticed that they had enough time to pursue their own dreams. A couple examples of some of the jobs they started were trading, baskets makers, toolmakers and weavers.
Mother is even going to start making baskets!
And she is going to sell them for supplies.
After people had discovered harvesting and raising animals they had enough food for everyone to eat and enjoy. Not only did they get food from raising animals and farming but they also got food from trading with other people outside of the area they lived in. Finally families could enjoy a lovely dinner with no worries of having enough food to share with everyone.
