explain how the agricultural revolution led to the establishment of perment settlements
The first agricultural revolution, also called the Neolithic Revolution, occurred as long as 25,000 years ago. However, most people consider the agricultural revolution of about 7,000 to 9,000 years ago the most important. This was the time when people began to grow crops like wheat and olives and domesticate animals such as cattle and hogs.
Since they didn't have to move around to follow herds of wild animals and find nuts and berries, people were able to stay in one place and settle down. Farming produced more food than hunting and gathering, so some people could do other things, like develop writing and art and government.
