Hunting,Fishing, and gathering society
This is one of the earliest forms of human society .It is characterized by subsistence economies that rarely produce surplus. Anthropologist estimate that men hunted for food at least one million years ago. People survived by searching and gathering food and by a small game of hunting wild animals.
Horticultural society
This society is believed to have existed 12,000 to 15,000 years ago .It gave way to the first breakthrough in subsistence economy , which was development of agriculture

there are two distinct approaches to horticulture namely :

a. subsistence farming producing enough food to feed the group and

b. surplus farming producing surpluses that are culturally valued

Types of Society

This type of society depends on herding and domestication of animals for food and clothing.Animals provide milk , fuel, sheared fur, and even blood.
Agricultural Society
This society existed about 5,000 to 6,000 years ago , when a second agricultural revolution occurred doubling and redoubling the efficiency of food production through better technology
Industrial Society
The advent of industrialization in Europe some 200 years ago brought about the third major revolution in production.The substitution of mechanical, electrical and fossil-fuel energy for human and animal labor caused an explosive growth in productivity , not only of goods but also of knowledge and technology
Post-industrial society
depends on special knowledge to bring about continuing progress in technology
