My community will help you if you provide us with protection.
Towns and Cities
If you share your extra food supply I could become a weaver instead of a farmer and make weaved goods that we could trade with!
New iron tools have really helped me to clear my fields faster and easier than ever before. I don't know what we will do with all this food.
Early communities were usually made of 15-20 people. These communities consisted of families that produced most of what they needed but trd
Empires and Kingdoms
Communties would then band together to form villages. These villages banded together because they may have needed extra protection, help farming, help mining, and help to stop a flooding river.
Villages in West Africa were introduced to iron smelting and trade. The creation of iron farming tools allowed farmers to clear and plant fields much easier and faster. This then led to a surplus of food. Now with this extra food people were able to become craftsmen and trade more often with others around them.
