Oh No ! My Child Ashley Has been (dramatic pause) TAKEN...
Paleolithic Times: 2
I like berries
Realization of new ways to live
We should get seeds and start a farm and breed animals!
Just about 8,000 years ago people had to move place to place to try to find animals to kill. Also while the women were picking berries, animals would often come eat their children.
LETS BUILD Permanent SHELTERS
In the paleolithic times, men thought they were stronger than women and that they were the only ones who could hunt. So the women had to pick berries and take care of the children and never see their husband.
Jobs & Laws
One day, people somehow had a lightbulb go off in their heads and realized that they should take the seeds and plant them, gather the poultry trap them in a fenced in area, and breed them. So they could stay in one place and make a home there.
Trading with other villages
People then realized that they needed a permanent shelter, they gathered and cut wood to build homes. They also used wheat and reeds to build roofs. They needed homes and permanent shelters so that animals wouldn't come and eat them in their sleep.
At this point in time, the people realized that they should make laws so people wouldn't just steal from each other, and everyone would have equal amounts of food. While they were making laws they realized everyone should have their own special jobs, for example, the men would fish, hunt, and build.
MY NEW JOB IS TO CATCH F-I-I-I-SH
O-M-G we should like make laws so we can like live peacefully
Different villages were in different places with different materials so in order for one village to get materials from another village they had to trade. Mostly trading would be building supplies in exchange for food or fresh water. So if one village ran out of food they could trade their building materials for food.
