Transcript of What was the Role of Men and Women in the Stone Age?

Hunter Gatherers
Hunter-Gatherers was one of the
societies
in the stone age. The women would
gather
seeds, nuts, wild plants and they would also cook, make clothes and take care of their children. The men would hunt and paint on cave walls. This
society
made new tools and some of them we still use. They were able to speak but were still developing in their language. And had a religion by their art on cave walls. Some
technologies
they used were fire, arrow heads and way more other tools. And some
artifacts
they made were flint knives, hand axes and way more. These people were
Homo Sapiens.

The Women's Role
In the Stone age times most of the
societies
were called
Hunter-Gatherers.
In that society most of the women had a role called
gathering
. They would gather all sorts of things like wild plants, seeds, nuts and some other things in the wild. The women would also cook the food the men would hunt, make the clothes with animal fur, make accessories with bones and take care of the children. Most of the time the women would stay at the camp. The women did not hunt or paint on cave walls in the stone age. Women had easier jobs than men but they had much more jobs to take care of so they were working as hard as the men were.

The Men's Role
While the women were doing all that most of the men were

specialized
in … Hunting. They would hunt in small groups so they can track down large animals like mammoths and big herds of animals. They barely ever hunted alone. Some of the tools they used were flint knives, arrow heads etc. Another thing that men did were painting on cave walls, more known as art.
Archaeologists
think that they did that for a religious belief in the stone age times. In the cave walls they drew herds of deers and longhorns and bison running in the grass, Big mammoths walking in around trees and sometimes they even drew themselves.
Archaeologists
also said it gave them good luck to their hunting. Men would not
gather
or cook or make clothes and accessories. But they did make their own tools by
flaking.

I guess some of you maybe don’t know about what the Stone Age people did as a job. In the stone age times you did not really have the freedom to choose a job. And there were not many jobs either. They were all surviving jobs but one job was for religious beliefs. The roles of men and women have been very different in history but right back in pre History there is evidence that there were very different jobs for the men, and other jobs for the woman. These jobs were important in helping everyone survive in very difficult time . The Stone Age.
