Objectives 9/10

  • Describe characteristics of early man
  • Explain impact of geography on human societies
  • Analyze cave art for clues of technology, religion
  • Describe how human lifestyles changed in the Neolithic Era
slide3

Early Man – Pre-AP

  • Homo Sapiens Sapiens emerged
  • During the Paleolithic Age (Old Stone Age) 2 million – 12,000 BCE
  • Humans lived in clans, were nomadic and hunted and gathered for food
  • Since both men and women shared the job of supplying food for the family, there was relative equality among men and women
  • Populations remained small ---Why?
slide4

Simple stone tools developed,

  • use of fire, and cooperation were
  • characteristics of Paleolithic humans.
  • Cultures began to develop
  • that included goddesses,
  • cave paintings.
  • What is culture?
  • A system of beliefs that helped
  • explain the environment and set up rules of social behavior
  • Oral language helped transmit culture

Paleolithic Humans

slide5

The greatest achievement of humans in the Paleolithic

Era was the migration to all continents except Antarctica.

Land and ice bridges connected the continents.

Humans originated in Africa

slide6

How did humans

migrate from Asia

into the Americas?

Land/Ice Bridges connected Siberia and Alaska

slide7

Humans during this time had to adapt

to their physical environment.

What were some adaptations?

Using animal skins for warmth

Using natural resources for shelter

slide8

As the Ice Age ended,

sea levels rose eliminating

the land bridges.

As the earth warmed,

the human population expanded

Technology improved

The Neolithic Revolution began between 10,000-8,000 years ago which transformed human existence.

slide9

As rising sea levels eliminated

land bridges, societies became isolated in the Americas, islands, and

Australia.

Aborigines are believed to be descended from the first humans who migrated to Australia during the Paleolithic era.

slide10

Agriculture develops

Seeds scattered at a regular campsite result in crops the following season

The agricultural revolution begins and over the next several hundred years, many societies begin to farm.

Agriculture first developed

in the Middle East.

slide11

How did life change for humans as they settled into permanent dwellings?

  • Farming led to food surpluses
  • Technology advanced rapidly as farm tools,
  • weaving, basket-making and pottery developed
  • Humans domesticated animals
slide12

The Role of Women

As agriculture developed, the role of women began to change. Gender equality which existed in the Paleolithic era was replaced by a patriarchal society in which men became the primary farmers or workers. As a result of better nutrition

and a sedentary life, women had more children. Women became family caregivers.

slide13

Human communities developed

  • Political and
  • Economic goals
  • Religion
  • Social patterns
  • Intellectual
  • advancements and
  • Achievements
slide14

The Bronze Age began around 4000 BCE with the

development of metal working

First copper

and later

bronze

would be used to make farm tools and

weapons

slide15

Effects

Causes

  • People become sedentary
  • living in permanent
  • settlements
  • Job specialization
  • Population explosion

Climate Changes

Global warming

Scattering of

seeds led to

crops

Agricultural

Revolution

Growth of villages into Cities

slide16

Agriculture changed everything – It was a revolution because

it led to:

Ad

Advanced

Technology

Recor

J

Record Keeping

Job

Specialization

Civilization

Advanced

Co

Complex

Institutions

Advanced

Cities

slide17

Agriculture led to larger communities –

  • Slash and burn farming
  • Herding
  • Permanent settlements
  • Development of irrigation systems – sharing resources
  • required organization –
  • development of early goverments
  • Development of defense
  • Job specialization
  • Social hierarchy develops with wealth or economic surplus

Walls of Jericho

Technological and social advances gave rise to stable communities

slide18

Aleppo and Jericho

Were early cities in the Fertile Crescent studied by archaeologists

CatalHuyuk

is an example of a Neolithic settlement currently under

excavation in Anatolia or

Asia Minor

slide19

With the development of agriculture, humans no longer adapted to their environment. They learn to control their environment . Example: growing crops, domesticating animals such as goats and developing irrigation systems to control flooding.

slide20

Stonehenge, located in England provides a perfect example of humans controlling their environment. Built between the Neolithic era and completed during the bronze age, each stone weighs four tons each. How did they build it?
