My baby is almost starving to death! My husband is barely here and he can't even hunt enough for us!
The Agriculture Revolution
I've finally discovered how to plant and collect crops!
Domesticating Of Animals
In the Paleolithic Era, the people were hunter- gathers. Meaning, they would collect plants and hunt for food as they were wandering. They often take shelter in caves. The people left clues of how they lived by painting animals and other things.
Beginning Of Trades
People in the Paleolithic Era often gathered wild plants but they soon discovered they could plant seeds and harvest crops without wandering far away. Wild plants grew scarce and hard to find.
We finally have home a together!
Hunting was very dangerous and often led to injury or death to the hunters. Farmers then discovered that they could domesticate animals and raise them to peoples needs. Some animals that they raised were sheep, goats, and cattle. They also raised mules to pull plows.
Maybe i should make baskets?
People often traded for things they don't have. Popular things to trade were flint and obsidian. Obsidian is a glass that forms at volcanic mountains. For women they traded a shell called hematite. It was used as a beauty product. Women often rubbed hematite on their lip and cheeks to give them a rosy look.
People mostly used mud bricks to build round or rectangular houses. sometimes they also used stones or tree branches to strengthen roofs. In the Paleolithic Era, people were nomads meaning they had to move in order to keep supply of food. They had several rooms to store food and they had also dug pits in the ground to cook food.
As people started having surpluses of food, they decided to make new jobs to help their communities. There were job such as weavers, basket makers, tool makers, and traders. Neolithic people didn't just survive, they made their survival beautiful.
