Transcript of The Neolithic Age

Neolithic Age By Taylor, Michelle and Maurie The Neolithic Age was during the latest part of the stone age. Around 10,000 B.C.E- 2000 B.C.E It started in the Middle East.During this time people started living in houses coated in plaster and used mud bricks. Permanent houses appeared in the Neolithic Age. People domesticated plants and animals during this time. They were very skilled farmers. There are many artifacts from the Neolithic Age that have been found but not a lot of cloth. From this we can infer that the people used animal skins for clothing. The majority of jobs during this time were stone workers, house builders, farmers and people who weaved. Bibliography
