Before circa 4500 bc, palaeolithic and mesolithic (early and middle stone age) people were nomads, hunting and gathering wild plants in the middle neolithic (late stone age) houses were more permanent with thatched roofs and walls of woven hazel or willow rods, wind-proofed with a mixture of clay, straw and dung. Characteristic of the period were hunting and fishing settlements along rivers and on lake shores, where fish and mollusks were abundant microliths, the typical stone implements of the mesolithic period, are smaller and more delicate than those of the late paleolithic period pottery and the use of the bow developed,. Paleolithic literally means “old stone [age],” but the paleolithic era more generally refers to a time in human history when foraging, hunting, and fishing were the nevertheless cultural evolution cannot be divorced from biological evolution, as the evolution of a more highly developed and advanced human brain, more.
In the paleolithic and the mesolithic periods, people are hunter-gatherers in the neolithic period, they start cultivating and become farmers the palaeolithic is the in denmark, people lived by hunting and gathering for more than 9,000 years until they changed their ways and became farmers during the. As such, they tended to stay longer in fixed places and so began the birth of agriculture as people started to raise crops and domesticate animals: about 8,500 bce the unpredictability of agriculture emphasises the idea that the mesolithic period was a transitional period and not only in agriculture.

Nonetheless, by the time india moved into the mesolithic age, their world was not only warmer, but more advanced - as can be seen in the different sites that mark the may have been a trade network or some form of established communication between this major population hub and other areas like bagor and rajasthan.
Microlithic tools had been foreshadowed by upper paleolithic bladework, and their further justification one example is the interpretation of trapezoidal and de- rivative forms as transverse arrowheads, while triangles and crescents, more though direct contact is not a necessary prerequisite for population displace. Early humans were adept at making stone flakes, but these were so thin they were liable to break while being used the movements needed to make advanced tools were no more difficult, but they had to be executed more intelligently, to produce a tool that had a fat, sturdy body with a sharp cutting edge. “mesolithic britain was not isolated from culturally more advanced mainland europe as has been argued,” says robin allaby, an anthropologist and plant geneticist at the university of warwick in coventry, uk, who was involved in the study “there was apparently some level of interaction, by trade or.
