Threshold 7: Agriculture (continued)
This storyboard does not have a description.
Agriculture also led to diversification of labor, or different types of jobs.
This was the first step towards more advanced hierarchies and social structures.
With a less varied diet and a higher concentration of humans and animals, farming civilizations were more susceptible to disease.
However, farming wasn't a perfect way of life.
On the other hand, humans were able to support larger populations in a smaller area of land.
In conclusion, agriculture was an important turning point in history, leading to new civilizations and a more advanced way of life.
