cold period. These are things that affect migration. -the geologic ear of Holocene era starts about 12,000 years ago or about 10,000 B.C.-marked by a warm stable climate. There’s variability but only a little change. Marks a time of beginning of food production and not just gathering. Every ancestral on the planet is just catching and eating but not storing. What we see in Holocene is after these fluctuations, people start to manipulate the environment because it’s a little bit more predictable. -archeologists are interested in food because: 1) our species, Homo sapiens, only move from food collection to food production about 10-12,000 years ago! Right when climate starts to stabilize!! Food production and Holocene go together!!! before Holocene, just catch and eat like everyone else on the planet. You can fight over everything all the time or you can stay put and grow food. That is the decision making process humans started to develop! Like Egypt and the Nile. Food production is response to a larger population and this is happening in China, Africa, and India subcontinent. Making an investment to grow food. 2) cultivation of food develops cities and states and empires possible! You can’t make great art if you’re hungry too! (40,000 years ago) -stages of development in food production of upper Paleolithic and have more diverse diet. 40- 50,000 years ago! Right when they are making art! These folks are busy and just sitting around. -Paleolithic-catch fish, nibble on plants, and deliberate targeting about prime animals. Its about who catch the biggest animals! Its not just about eating. Its about power and status. -analyze climate fluctuations and stabilization of climate -botanical analysis of plant remains and fauna remains

    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.
