The Turning Point of Prehistory

Post  Brock M. Hay on Tue Aug 30, 2011 12:07 pm


The agricultural revolution is probably on of the most important revolutions human kind has seen. If you want you can call it "the mother of all revolutions", this is when (in 10 000 BC) people figured out how to farm and domesticate, so therefore they gave up thier old nomadic lifestyle. But how did this all happened? Probably it started when the food gathering women droped a seed on the ground by accident, and when they returned, they observed the plant grow. They might have started to clear out small areas where they could plant many edible foods, then they thought 'wait a minuete, if we stay in one place it will be easier to grow stuff!' This marks the end of the old stone age and the birth of the new stone age.

They soon made villages, and the greatest hunters became warriors, and protected the tribe from other people who might invade to eat the food and steal their possessions. They used the elderly men of the tribe who werent quite physically able to do hard work, to lead and make the desicions of the tribe. Women lost thier reputation as food gatherers and had the new reputation of child carers. After the first few stationary tribes took place people learned that if they trapped animals, and fed them, they could make the animals (like cows) do usefull things like hauling supplies, or helping to hunt or protect the village (wolves or dogs). This is Domestication!

This blog speaks much of birthing of new ways and the death of the old ways, and this concept will never stop throughout the entire human existence. Hell, probably there will be another revolution in a hundred or so years, and the way we do things today, will only be remembered in history books.
So anyway, what other revolutions, time periods, eras, or changes do you think make a turning point in history (or prehistory)? Do you think they are just as or more important than the agricultural revolution?

Revolutions

Post  Josh Medrano on Fri Sep 09, 2011 7:58 pm

There a few world events that change the curse of the our earth. For example: The Italian Renaissance, Protest Reformation and Catholic Counter- Reformation, The Price Revolution, The Scientific Revolution, and the Enlightenment Period. All these events change the world one way or the other, although they are not such dramatic changes like the Agricultural Revolution.
