Times of our lives: neolithic hunting history. What’s considered life stories of ancestry, when most of history was before writing?


Is it insights gained from archaeology, climate and the environment? Were the happiest humans truly those strong and most willing to find and hunt woolly rhino or mammoth? Giant cats, bears, dog, sloth and armadillo? Were they big tough Log and stone builders?? Large enough to keep a living space warm and pest free?

What defined leadership of cultures, and races of people? For example. Was it those willing to explore and travel to cooler and more rugged areas of the northern Europe? How about those who went up and beyond the mid western north America and Canadian glaciers aged 15 thousand years ago? What about Beringa and Greenland? Are these pest log chimney hunters the greatest humans to have ever lived?

Lets look at bibliographies of individual sites and groups. Danish, some german and northern europeans were identified as building some of the first sailable log boats. An answer could be yes. These people were tough, probably got a little wet. They saw, hunted, killed, built and survived through some of the most beautiful tough landscapes and animals earth will ever know.

How about history as a narrative based on predictable archaeology? Many middle eastern and southern settlements eventually declined, or went back and forth temporarily. Vindicated perhaps it was there strong hunters, builders that probably moved when bad things were happening. They exercised there freedoms, and skills by going elsewhere, and more likely north.

Consider from within? Did you like eating raw plants, and meat? Darkness? Making things from nothing? Cooler unpredictable weather? Better humans enjoy this. They were not predominately affected by temporal scales of history. They wanted to thrive. Consider deep thinking, or deep history. Linking archaeology, anthropology; with pest control, chimney cleaning, and log building. That’s Groundbreaking. Its big.

Historical and methodological techniques reconstructing timelines. Mostly relate to continents, and alpine wetland settlements. Where food and supplies were readily available. Wasn’t easy. Annual dating of events; houses/shelter, and year specific settlement growth. That were relevant to these alpine wetland or landscape specific histories. Is proven where the quantity of recovered material (or data). Is significant enough to allow both typological and scientific dating.

Methods for this were already seriated. That is, things, order things. With absolute chronologies (stratographic and radiometric dating) conferred around 1980.

Precise chronologies are the only form of narrative. And, so must be considered with respect to there respective partners in Europe, Africa, north and South America, Asia, Africa, Australia and so on.

Using one of the greatest timelines in prehistory. Theoretical concepts including deep knowledge and dating approaches should be applauded. Not only for the neolithic hunting history of snagging a great beast. But for the good of neolithic architecture, pest control, chimney cleaning and log cabin building in general.

8 general characteristics of the neolithic revolution:

  1. Possible beginnings: The influx of the Tigris and Euphrates allowed ranching and agriculture. According to Gordon Childe, the “Fertile Crescent”, is evidence of one, or one of the main starting point of agriculture and ranching. It covers the Egyptian area from the Nile Valley (Africa) to Mesopotamia, between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers (Asia) between the periods of 10,000 and 8,000 bc.
  2. Agriculture:    The cultivation of cereals gained relevance, especially rye, wheat and barley. It is believed, however, that they were not the first species to be cultivated. Legumes date to more ancient cultivations and also some fruit trees from Asia. The use of ferments and yeasts, responsible for making bread and dairy products and, consequently, alcoholic beverages also became popular.

  1. Ranching: The first animal to enter the human habitat was the dog. The pig occupied a leading place in livestock. And the neolithic domestication of sheep, cattle and goats constituted a fundamental pillar in the production of what you see today. In Central Asia, even the domestication of horses occurred. Poultry and birds were domesticated, and there is information on insects, for example, as beekeeping, sericulture, and fishing bait.
  2. Invention of textiles: While being pre-supported by knowledge of animal cultivation, archeologists discovered many garments made from linen and wool. It is in this period when looms were created, and the first tools were used to weave and sew.

  1. Flint knapping and tool making:    This is the name given to the reduction of lithic elements (stone work). Which allowed greater strength and standardized production methods to create more tools. For example, arrowheads, spears, knives, fishing hooks, axes, cutting and grinding stones, etc
  2. Creation of ceramics: During the Neolithic revolution, pottery became widely used.

  1. A special relationship with the land began: The cycle of life and death, fertility; including animistics, religion, and writing started and was developed during the neolithic age.
  2. Emergence of private property: The work of farmers requires a lot of effort and time. It makes sense the premises during these times, began private properties protection.
