Issues and Concepts to Think About •In what sense did V. Gordon Childe see the “Neolithic” (Food Production) revolution as “revolutionary”? •Define the process of domestication. What are some of its basic outcomes? •What kinds of carved or painted images are usually found in Late Upper Paleolithic caves? Were such images usually found in places where people lived? •Was domestication a process that rapidly restructured ancient societies? •Is it useful to make a strong distinction between hunting-gathering and food-producing societies if we take a long view of human cultural adaptation? Do hunter-gatherers exhibit behaviors that we often associate with farmers? •Why is it useful to think of the initial adoption of food production as highly conservative, rather than innovative? •What are some basic features of institutions as discussed in class? •Roughly how many people are estimated to have lived in the world at the very end of the Pleistocene? Why were there so few?

    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.
