Quote of the Day: “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there”
* The Neolithic Revolution, the period of human history from 10,000 to 4000 B.C., is marked by the rise of systematic agriculture—the domestication of animals and the growing of crops on a regular basis.
* Systematic agriculture often resulted in the production of more crops than local people could consume. This meant that some people could leave farming and work in trades and crafts. During the last stages of the Neolithic Age, craftspeople discovered ways of making improved tools and weapons using copper and later bronze.
