Before 10,000 BCE
World & Human History Timeline
Over 650,000 years ago, weather changes caused the melting of the ice on Earth, ending the ice age. Many animals found this as a new opportunity to migrate and reproduce in unknown areas.
(General Overview of the Ice Ages, 2002)
All the people in the world got their food by hunting and gathering. There were probably only about 2,000 people in the whole world. All of these people had black skin. All of them lived in Africa, and they lived in temporary shelters. Almost as soon as there were people, about 1.9 million years ago, they began to make stone tools. A million years later, around 800,000 BCE, people learned to use fire.
The Ice Age
In the Mesolithic age humans were hunters and gathers and learned how to control fire. By burning the fields they were able to change the environment and make it manageable.
( Logan, Tinsley, Glasgow, Kelly and Todd, 1996)
Around 10,000 BC, with the end of the last major Ice Age, a lot more people where in the world, and at the same time a global warming period began that meant there were fewer places to live. So people began to live closer together, and we see the first communities and settled cities. In West Asia and Egypt, people began keeping domesticated animals around 7000 BC, the they began farming wheat and barley and lentils and figs by around 6000 BC.
By this time a great part of the world is living by smaller groups of hunters-gatherers.
"New Stone Age"
The Neolithic or “New Stone Age” is where agriculture was introduced. Also, people began to domesticate animals which made easier some jobs. In the Near East, agriculture was developed around 9,000 BCE, in Southeast Europe around 7,000 BCE, and later in other regions.

The Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages
(3,000 - 1,000 BCE)
A new age began. The Bronze age started in Southwest Asia in 1000-3000 BC. In this time , bronze was the main material. It was used on jewelry, weapons, tools, and more. Even though the first metal that was smelted was the copper, people preferred bronze because it was of greater quality. Also, the Iron age started in 1000 BC in Southwest Asia and it spread to North Africa. The first wheel was development in china.
It ended in 2100 BC.

(60 BCE- 500 BCE)
The Roman period started at 730 , and ended in 476. In this period many advances in technology were made, new crops were introduced like cabbage and carrots. Livestock was improved. As a result, better dairy and meat was produced. The Romans collected supplies such as iron and other metals to have an advantage over other empires.

The French Revolution began in 1789 and ended in the late 1790's. It ended after the death of Napoleon Bonaparte.

The little Ice Age
The Ice Age is a period that took place between 1300 and 1870 in which the weather was very cold. This age was marked by Europe’s trade negotiations and its control over the sea.
Approximately around 50,000 BCE, the first settlers are thought to have arrived to Australia. This should have been a time when the sea levels were low, the animals were larger, and the land was humid.
United States makes the revolution against the British. (Historycentral,n.d.)
(The little Ice Age, n.d.)
The Medieval Age started long after the fall of Rome. No big advancements were made in this age. No scientific accomplishments had been made, no great art produced, no great leaders born. It was an age of barbarism and religion.
(The Middle Ages, ND)
Invented the Astronomy, calendar system. They also created hieroglyphic writing. They had structures like palaces and pyramids. Mayan people were skilled farmers.
