This essay will dwell on questions connected with these changes and will explain how a human dealt with them and what kind of influence it had on society.
It is well-known there were changes that happened from the Paleolithic Period (Old Stone Age) to Neolithic (New Stone Age). In each age separate cultures are identified, which differ not only by their geographic region but also by the lifetime. Changes had a place in all spheres of human life, like economics, agriculture, culture, way of life and others.
The Paleolithic Period is the earliest time period and it dates from 2,000,000 B.C to 10,000 BC. This period was the longest in the Stone Age’s. Simple lives were inherent in the people of the Paleolithic Period and the main aim of their life was to survive in severe conditions of that times. Of course, the Neolithic Period (extended from 10,000 B.C to 3,000 BC) greatly differs from previous period first of all by its origin and improvement of tools and weapon. The people invented agriculture and it led to the settled life. In such a way, changes were caused by the necessity to survive in extreme environment and by the beginning of agriculture and settled life. Unlike Paleolithic time’s, man could have more leisure time to spend and it also encourage the origin of society and even jobs. It’s impossible for inquiring human mind to make no headway and discovering attempts caused new changes and new ways of society’s development.
