Paleolithic and Neolithic World History SOL WHI.2a,b,c,d Essential Questions How did physical geography influence the lives of

early humans? What were the characteristics of hunter gatherer societies? How did the beginning of agriculture and the

domestication of animals promote the rise of settled communities? How does archaeology provide knowledge of early human life and its changes? Archaeology Archaeologists study past cultures by

locating and analyzing human remains, settlements, fossils, and artifacts. Artifacts can be tools, weapons, clothing, pottery, and jewelry. By analyzing artifacts archaeologists draw conclusions about the beliefs, values, and activities of our ancestors.

Archaeology Archaeologists have devised many useful techniques. They pick a likely spot to dig and the

deeper they dig, the older the artifacts they find. Archaeologists make detailed maps of every artifact they find. This helps them draw conclusions about how a site changed over time. Archaeologists can also use carbon dating to analyze fossils and artifacts.

learned how to farm. By producing their own food they could remain in one place. Farmers settled permanent villages and developed a new range of skills and tools. People also learned to domesticate, or tame, some animals they had once hunted.

They then herded these animals and penned them in enclosures. Neolithic House Neolithic site in Scotland
