5 Pre-history What does pre-history mean? The period of time before people started writing things down.
6 Anthropology The study of human life (past/present) and culture (beliefs, values, practices) Fossils The remains of ancient plants and animals. Studying fossils we can learn about what people ate, what animals they had around, and their way of life. Carbon Dating Used to date organic fossils, or things that were once alive All living things contain a radioactive isotope of Carbon called Carbon 14 which they absorb from the sun while they are alive.
7 Archaeology Artifacts The study of past societies through an analysis of what people have left behind (human remains, settlements, fossils, artifacts). Artifacts are man-made things that people left behind, they can include: Tools and Weapons Art and Sculpture Pottery Jewelry Human Remains Ancient Buildings and Monuments
8 Scientists search for Human Origins Prehistory dates back to the time before the invention of writing roughly 5,000 years ago. Archaeologists work like detectives to uncover the story of prehistoric peoples. Anthropologist s study culture, or a people s unique way of life. Paleontologists study fossils. They all work as a team studying artifacts (humanmade objects, such as tools and jewelry) to make new discoveries about how prehistoric people lived.

23 Neolithic Age When people developed agriculture and made permanent settlements, the Neolithic Age (NEW Stone Age) began.
24 Neolithic Achievements Domesticated animals- Made advanced tools Made pottery to store food Could now weave cloth
25 Neolithic Revolution Agricultural Revolution A shift from food-gathering to food-producing culture Why did this happen? Change in climate Longer growing season & drier land cultivate grasses (grain) supported a small population boom Population growth Hunter-gatherers pressured to find new food sources to support
26 Neolithic Revolution Slash and burn farming A method where they cut trees/grasses and burned them to clear a field. Why use this method? To clear land for farming What did this do to the soil? Fertilized

33 Rise of Civilizations Agricultural Surplus Specialization of Labor Trade As farming technology improved people were able to grow the food they needed. Because of this not everyone had to work on providing food anymore and so people could do other things. People could focus on one particular thing, so technology and skills improved. As artisans made goods they began to exchange goods with other villages, and later cities, who had different goods. This was a barter system.
34 What do you need to be Civilized? Advanced Cities How close were you? Advanced Tools What makes you Civilized? Complex Institutions Record Keeping Specialized Labor
35 What is a civilization? A form of human culture in which some people live in cities, have complex social institutions, use some form of writing, and are skilled at using science and technology
36 Exploring the Five Characteristics of Civilization Activity 15 mins
37 Advanced Cities More food = more people As populations grew, cities were formed. Cities Areas that do not farm!
38 Complex Institutions Government The need for government emerged because there was a need to regulate many aspects of city life including the food supply and the defense of the city. As people had more contact with each other, conflicts also emerged, government helped to regulate these as well. Most early governments were monarchies.
39 Complex Institutions Religion Religion developed originally as a way to explain natural phenomena. This gave priests special power and make them important figures.
40 Specialized Labor Food surplus allowed for an opportunity to specialize in labor. Rise of Artists Farmers Priests Scribes
41 Record Keeping/Writing Writing developed as a way to keep records. The first written language developed in Sumer in Mesopotamia, it became known as Cuneiform (wedgeshaped writing)
42 Advanced Technology As work became more specialized, humans made advances in their fields. Wheel Plow Sailboat Bronze Weapons
