Please help. I need to complete an extensive early civilizations matrix from Prehistory to the time of the Romans, Egyptians, Greeks and Juadeo Christians. Its a little complicated for me and assistance will be greatly appreciated. The task is as follows:
For each civilization (see the list), note the details of key political, socioeconomic, technological, artistic, musical, architectural, philosophical, and literary developments which were evidenced in the humanities. Provide names, titles, dates, brief desriptions of salient impacts.
Prehistoric,Mesopotamian, Ancient Egyptian,Archaic Greek, Aegean, Classical Greek, Hellenistic, Roman, Judaic , early Christian, Byzantium, Islamic
The solution, an extensive matrix of ancients ...
Under what circumstances do anthropologists think people started producing their own food rather than mainly gathering or hunting? What are some advantages and disadvantages of food producing subsistence patterns? What were the earliest plants and animals to be domisticated ?How do we recognize evidence of domestication and food production in the archaeological records of past societies? How did the lifestyles of people change with agriculture and cities?

There are several theories that have been postulated to explain the emergence of planting and the domestication of animals as opposed to hunting and gathering. One is that environmental and/or climate changes caused a decrease in the available wild food options for a specific people group. Due to this unforeseen change they were forced to choose between moving on to new hunting grounds or attempt to plant crops and domesticate animals. Some groups chose to abandon the hunter/gatherer lifestyle. Another theory states that as the human population of a clan or tribal group grew, eventually it would reach a point that could not be sustained by the food that could be hunted and gathered. In order to support a growing population people groups were forced to branch out and begin farming and domesticating animals in addition to continued hunting and gathering efforts.View Full Posting Details
