Trade Trade was always a feature of hunter-gatherer societies; however, with the development of farming it increased greatly in scope and scale. The earliest farming societies in the did not use. The cultivation of grains enabled Neolithic peoples to build permanent dwellings and congregate in villages, and the release from and a hunting-and-gathering economy gave them the time to pursue specialized crafts. First Farmers: The Origins of Agricultural Societies. As people began to settle in villages, these villages became towns and then cities.
The changes most often associated with the Neolithic Revolution include an increased tendency to live in or semi-permanent. Because people now grew crops and raised they no longer needed to move around. Humans went to live in or near where there is more water, to be able to survive. This increase in crop cultivation facilitated the increase in population size because more food was available. The first evidence of cultivation and animal in southwestern Asia has been dated to roughly 9500 bce, which suggests that those activities may have begun before that date. It suggests that agriculture began in the hilly flanks of the and , and that it developed from intensive focused grain gathering in the region.

In any event, farming was probably the equivalent of the Amerindian tribes, who learned to rotate crops and simply bring back gathered foods to some more-or-less permanent spot that they were comfortable in. Because of agriculture people could now farm instead of hunting andgathering. But technology itself depends on institutions — and on institutional innovations. The Neolithic Revolution is important for developments in social organization and. Farming caused humans to permanently settle. Climate data from the period does not support it though.
To say they did nothing else but look for food would, of course, be wrong: hunter-gatherers, similar to their contemporaries today, had many basic technologies available to them such as axes, knives, bows and arrows, and cooking utensils. It also occurred independently probably at later dates in China, the Americas and possibly in parts of Africa and New Guinea. So agricultural societies simply fed more people, allowed for larger families and so could push out, absorb or slaughter the hunter-gathering societies in the long run. People also started to keep and manage some foods - it was not advisable to eat all grain seeds, because then there would be no seeds left to plant the next year. It occurred on many continents at different times, since there was little to no interaction between different peoples. Though popular, this argument is at odds with the archaeological evidence, which instead shows extensive social and institutional change prior to the transition to farming in the Middle East. During the Paleolithic period when hunting and gathering was the dominant model of food obtainment, food was shared between individuals.
It went from hunting and gathering to farming. They surrounded themselves with close groups of advisors and experts to help maintain their position of privilege. According to some it was simple progress, people figured out a better way to get food and stuck with it. Since people began living in tighter more complex social situationsthis also led to better and more complicated forms ofcommunication. He thought that it was as important as the which happened in the and. Turning points have had significant and lasting impact on human development. First Farmers: The Origins of Agricultural Societies.
In Anne Birgitte Gebauer and T. Animals The main development of the Neolithic Revolution is farming. In short, people settle down and begin to live in one place, year after year. Many hunter-gatherers practice this to some degree. They then had to build more durable homes, and set up sanitary facilities to keep their water fresh.
