Paleolithic cave drawings
The Neolithic Revolution and early agricultural societies
What are Paleolithic Societies?
Small groups/ Kinship
Wild Plants and Animals for diet
Rich interior life
Understanding of the non-material world

Control over nature
We have three types of paintings:
Religious power (bring a good hunt)
Teaching young hunters to identify animals – Question: Who would be the hunters in a society?
Communication (precursor to writing)
How do the groups you placed these drawings in help you understand their purpose?
Is there room for additional interpretations of these drawings?
Changes in human life from hunters-gatherers to farmers
From food gathering-to-food producing
Rising temperatures (longer growing season)
Population growth- need for more food
