World civilizations

posted by .

Although most students begin by assuming settled farming life was better than that lived by hunter-gatherers, closer acquaintance with full Paleolithic Hunter-Gatherer life shows us many aspects that could be considered easier than that of very early, settled Neolithic farmers. Would you agree? Summarize the aspects of the lives of Paleolithic Hunter-Gathers and Neolithic settled farmers. Evaluate at least two of these aspects about the Hunter-Gatherer life that seem more positive as well as at least one aspect that seems less desirable than that of Neolithic settled farmers.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Your reply posts should be at least 150 words. Each should address something about the other student's post that interested or surprised you, or with which your thoughts differ. Be sure to explain your reasons for agreeing or disagreeing. In addition, contribute something further of your own to move the discussion forward. For example, you could provide an additional example or interpretation, or the URL address for a website that offers additional perspective or information.
