  • Native America  
  • Corn.
  • About 7000 years ago: Native Americans began farming.  They cross-bred different types of grass until they developed Corn.  Corn became the staple crop, but other crops followed.   Growing food enabled the Native Americans to settle in one place instead of wandering for food.   Years of farming enabled a food surplus to develop.  Food surplus enabled the development of civilizations.   WHY?
