Matthew Miller History 100 18 Oct. 2007 Maps of Time : Chapter 8 Chapter Eight is entitled, Intensification and Origins of Agriculture. The chapter discusses life on Earth following the last ice age referring to it as a fundamental turning point in human history. At this point agriculture appeared and the human population grew as societies began to form. Humans could not manage in great numbers as a nomadic people, but with the ability to create their own food source they were able to manage living in much larger groups. This marked the beginning of the practice of sedentism. Sedentism made these larger groups rely less on foraging and more on agriculture to survive. This era is known as The Holocene , which is characterized by a “world with few worlds.” The world was divided into four regions: the Afro- Eurasian, Australia/Papua New Guinea, Pacific, and American World Zones. Remarkably, agriculture appeared essentially simultaneously in three of the four world zones.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
