The First Crops
Farming develop during the Neolithic Revolution by using the large animals to do all the work and farmers learning how to plant food or wheat. Early humans made the large animals do all the work because they couldn't carry or pull heavy materials or bags. So, they made the large animals to do heavy work while, the early farmers were planting food or hunting animals. The farmers learned how to plant food because there wasn't enough wild grain to feed to the other early humans so, this made the early humans to produce food. Also, they learned how to cultivate land for crops or gardening. But, mostly womans did all the work instead of mens because womans were the first ones to notice the patterns of the growth of gardening that was when the womans learned how to plant food while the mens are busy hunting animals. Also, when the resources ran out then, all the early humans moved to a new location to find/ plant food with fresh soil. Well, you know the fresh soil, it was pig's monural , but you know why they used it because it helps the food to grow faster. The farmers used 2 innovations to help them to plant foods were fertilizers and farming tools. Also, the early humans used pits and bulidings to store all their crops, this also helps to stabilize their food supplies. Did you know that some stopped being hunting/gathereing and began farming because they learned how to use fertilizers and farming tools.
When, Where, and Why?
Peoples settle into permanet socities because they learned how to plant food and gather food in food storages. It happened since 14-11,000 years ago and also other peoples began to settle down in China, India, Egypt, Peru, and Mexico. Everyone started to settle down in a region because they started to learn how to hunt and gather food, some continued to be nomadic.Also, there is a difference between farming and the civilization was that THE farming caused the civilization to happen because of all the gardening and extra food to grow and while the others were doing the civilization. In fact, the revolution did not happened quickly, it only took about several thousand years. Did you know that in the past, they were nomadic peoples and moved from place to place and following the migration of the animals. Nomadic peoples used to eat based foods like fruits, seeds, roots, and nuts. There is a place called Fertile Cresent and it provided a lot of plants, animals, water, fresh soil and most important protection. Revolution means widespread change of life, it's like the same thing for the early humans they were changing the life of wide spreading.
The First Farm Animals
The Domesticated animals changed the society because animals can actually do all the hard work instead of the early farmers. Mostly the domesticated animals do all the hardest like the heavy bags or materials, and the early farmers do all the easy work like planting food, hunting animals, and etc. They also used cows, bulls, and Oxen but, mostly Oxen because they're very strong to carry or pull strong items, they mostly provided a lot of meat, fur, bones, and strongest muscles. But, some domesticated animals helped the society because they had really bad diseases which could cause a dilemma and they had Souine and Avian flu. Which means they won't be able to help the early farmers to use their strength, or meat. Also, the first animal that was domesticated were dogs because they were descended, used as pets, hunting and they were both really good at also pasturing sheeps or goats . Early humans herded and pastured wild animals by leading to us instead of them following us because that way the early humans could capture the wild animals while they're following the early humans. Goats and sheeps were domesticated because they were really easy to catch and they both provided wool, milk, and manure. Also, early humans domesticated farm animals 10,000 years ago, really long time! Have you heard the word of Beast of Burden? Well it means an animals for caring leads
