Transcript of THE NEOLITHIC ERA
In the Neolithic people started to specialize and bartered there services in exchange for food and other things. The division of labor also happened the division of labor is when each person of a society does a specific job. specialization was a development of skills in a specific kind of work.
Location & Time
The Neolithic era began somewhere between 10,000B.C. and 8000B.C. In those early years people began building farm land. A lot of the earliest farming villages were in an place called the Fertile Crescent. The Fertile Crescent is a region that expands from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea.
People of the Neolithic Era
In the Neolithic people developed new technology for the homes. They made clay pots and hardened them in kilns a kiln is a furnace or oven for burning, baking, or drying. They could be used to heat and melt the metal from rocks this process is called smelting. Later the liquid metal was cast in molds to make metal tools those tools began to replace stone tools.
People of the Neolithic Era
People from different ares lived in different dwellings.Ina town called Çatalhöyük which was located in the middle west the people built their houses out of bricks made of dried mud that had wooden frames and flat roofs.The house was divided into a large room along with clay platforms for sitting, sleeping, eating an a kitchen. People who lived in Europe near lakes placed their houses on wooden floors.They drove the base into the mud, and usually held them solid by stones put around around the base.
Culture are beliefs, customs, and traditions of a specific group of people. One example of this is shown by the Neanderthals culture and behaviors. The Neanderthals buried their dead, worshiped natural forces and their religion was based on rituals they offered the forces. Another example are the people who lived in the Çatalhöyük the people buried their dead beneath the floors of their houses.
The Neolithic era connects with the modern world. In Neolithic people used technology to improve their lives and people still continue to do this. People in the Neolithic would specialize and barter their service for food but nowadays people work for money that they use for their needs.People still have different cultures and behaviors to this day. Even though there has been lots of change some things are still happening.
