Transcript of Neolithic Age (4,000BC-2,300 BC)

Neolithic Age (4,000BC-2,300 BC)
The Neolithic Age, Era, or Period, or New Stone Age, was a period in the development of human technology, beginning about 9500 BC in the Middle East that is traditionally considered the last part of the Stone Age. The Neolithic followed the terminal Holocene Epipalaeolithic periods, beginning with the rise of farming, which produced the "Neolithic Revolution" and ending when metal tools became widespread in the Copper Age (chalcolithic) or Bronze Age or developing directly into the Iron Age, depending on geographical region. The Neolithic is not a specific chronological period, but rather a suite of behavioural and cultural characteristics, including the use of wild and domestic crops and the use of domesticated animals
Pottery assisted in completing work by storing there food used as cooking vessels for drinking and storing water.Before that time they used baskets to store food and bottles to store water.

In the medieval period dating from about 470 A.D. to 1200 A.D., carpets and rugs were commonly used to decorate homes. Wool was the most predominant type of material used, as it was available to the commoners in the region at the time. Other textile fabrics such as silk were also used.

Many of the rugs and carpets in the middle ages were imported from other Eastern regions. The oriental rugs were very popular vestiges of the Middle Ages. Traditional designs along with more intricate displays were common during this time period, and Turkey produced a substantial amount of rugs. Medieval art also played a significant role in the development. Symbolism and unique medieval designs were woven into the carpets as a tribute to some of the more brilliant artwork of that time period back then.
Rugs and Carpets
Is objects such as bowls, plates, etc. That are made out of clay usually by hand and then baked at high temperatures so that they become hard.
The oldest known pottery fragments stem from the Hittite civilization, 1400-1200 B.C.Since the first piece of clay fell into fire.
pottery appeared in China in the early period of the Neolithic Age, about 10,000 years ago. The development of agriculture led to a sedentary lifestyle and gradually diverse potteries were made to meet people's daily needs. Pottery vessels were used for cooking, storing, and drinking. And also used to be traded and used as gifts or just art.
Pottery is made different ways throughout different cultures pottery can be made in studios or hand made out of clay fire and pressure. Pottery became more widespread and was used to store food harvested for farms. Pottery was an social impact because people used pottery for gifts and presents or if they wanted to trade. Economically people traded pottery back then for things like fish or jewelry. Politically pottery didn’t have an impact to me because it was more of an art/ hobbies kind of thing something they could make to store food or water in.
