Transcript of Neolithic Revolution

dictionary.com noun: The origin and consequences of the introduction of agriculture, domestication of animals, and a more sedentary life during the later part of the Stone Age. The Neolithic Revolution What...? Wait... Let's simplify. The Neolithic Revolution was the start of humans growing crops and raising animals for consumption. Now do you understand? Good! Let's Continue. Before the Neolithic Revolution, there weren't large populations of people. Most people were nomads who kept numbers small in order to survive. The reason for this is that they didn't have enough food to sustain a large population. Around this time, people relied on hunting and gathering, meaning that they had to go out and look for their food. The Neolithic Revolution was the complete change of this lifestyle. At this point, people started to grow their own crops and raise their own animals for eating and other uses. Now, people could live together in larger populations because they could be sustained. Of course this had it's pros and cons. Cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs were domesticated around 9,000 B.C.E. And farming began to develop around 8,500 B.C.E. in the Middle East. Cons-
Diseases spread faster
More fighting due to inequality
Taxes began Pros-
Increased life expectancies
No need for constant moving
Societies started to develop. So now what? Now... Civilizations began to erupt. Populations began to grow.
Humans became civilized. Economies began to grow. Money became powerful. We developed into the modern society we are today. And we are here today. We are the most powerful civilization the world has ever seen. All thanks to the Neolithic Revolution. We are who we are today thanks to the Neolithic Revolution. The revolution that has remained relatively uncredited in comparison to others.
