1.3 - Civilization 1.3 - Civilization Presentation Transcript

  • Civilization
    • Advantages of Agricultural Revolution
    • Surplus of food
      • The amount of food was no longer limited to the fortune of nature.
    • Could build larger communities
      • The greater production of food meant that more people could be supported.
    • Make permanent settlements
      • You didn’t have to move around anymore. You could stay in one place.
    • Some people can do things other than survival tasks
      • It’s no longer the case that everybody has to be hunting or gathering. Folks can specialize in making pots or tools or art or being the boss.
    • Trade goods
      • Communities started interacting and exchanging stuff.

    • Advanced cities
      • Not just a bunch of people, but a center of trade for an area as well as a production center for goods
    • Specialized workers
      • Now that not everybody has to be hunting and gathering all the time (only a smaller segment of the population is needed for this), some folks can do other things, like make baskets, jewelry, weapons, pots, etc.
    • Complex Institutions
      • Organizational entities, such as religious groups and government.
    • Record Keeping
      • Keeping a record of activities of the city – this also required a system of writing. Cuneiform is an early example. There’s hieroglyphs in Egypt.
    • Advanced Technology
      • Using tools and such that make tasks easier.
    • Ur is an example of early civilization.
