Neolithic Era

Beginnings of Agriculture

The First Farmers

After the Middle Stone Age came a period of time that scientists called the Neolithic Era or New Stone Age. It all began as early as 10,000 years ago in Southwest Asia. In other places this era began much later and lasted much longer than it did there.

Farming Changes Societies

If you join the Neolithic Revolution you never get to starve and you would have more time to invent. Once people were able to control their own food production the world's population grew. As populations grew groups of people gathered to perform religous ceremonies.
