The neolithic brought about a major change in mankind's lifestyle. Prior to the said revolution, mankind practiced foraging, wherein they hunted and gathered their food. However, due to the change in climate (the Ice Age was ending), people decided to settle down. The neolithic revolution brought about a new concept to mankind called farming. Around 10,000-9,000 BCE, the first farmers gathered wild grains from the fertile crescent. At around 8,000 BCE, these farmers began to cultivate the wild grains. People began to domesticate animals for food, and so on. In short, it will bring upon the beginning of civilization.
