Pojęcia kluczowe

TermDefinition
Neolithic Periodfrom neo (new) + lithos (stone), the “new stone age” is the time period starting about 11,000 when humans began developing smaller, more refined tools
Neolithic Revolutionthe emergence of agriculture during the Neolithic Period
agriculturethe practice of raising domesticated plants or animals as a main food source
pastoralisma branch of agriculture that focuses on herding animals
domesticationthe process of taming animals and cultivating plants for farming
agricultural surplusagricultural output beyond the food necessary to support the people working directly in agriculture. This extra food can support others who take on non-agricultural tasks.
specialization of laborwhen people in an economic system are able to focus on doing a few, specific tasks very well, typically as a result of agricultural surplus
sedentismthe practice of settling in one place and not moving around; the opposite of a nomadic lifestyle

Environment: Environmental factors often affect patterns of human migration and settlement. One common theory is that agriculture emerged after a glacial period, when the earth got warmer and the land was more easily farmed. Agriculture developed independently in many regions, and people in each region domesticated locally available plants and animals. People cleared large swaths of land and created irrigation systems, which had profound effects on the environment.
Economics and social structures: Agricultural surplus allowed for more complex economic systems. After the Neolithic Revolution, new labor systems developed. With the emergence of a stable food supply, people had more time to focus on specialized tasks, which led to the specialization of labor. The development of specialized labor systems resulted in the emergence of separate classes of farmers, artisans, warriors, and elites.
State building: Agriculture led to an increased food supply and a more sedentary lifestyle, which facilitated the development and growth of cities. Cities concentrated large numbers of people who had no personal connections. Governments emerged to manage the larger number of resources and people.
