What Will I Learn?

  • Objective: learning the differences between (prehistoric) hunters and farmers, also as a cultural, mental and social development
  • Prehistoric hunters and gatherers
  • • Economy and technology
  • · Hunters and gatherers depend heavily on what the natural environment offers for their livelihood. Over time, they develop techniques that enable them to survive more easily in all kinds of environments and to
  • spread further and further across the globe. Despite their limited technical re-sources, prehistoric hunter-gatherers sometimes sustainably disrupted their nat-ural environment.
  • • Social organisation
  • · Hunter-gatherers generally live in a non-hierarchical society. The group size is be-tween 25 and 50 people. From time to time people get together in tribes
  • Prehistoric Farmers
  • • Economy and technical development
  • · In the long run, people will start farm-ing. This allows him to obtain more food in an area. Possession formation and barter will now also play a role. Agricul-ture sometimes leads to damage to na-ture through soil erosion.
  • • Social organisation
  • · Farmers live in villages of ± 100 peo-ple. They are forced to defend their land against invaders.
  • • Art and religion
  • · There are finds that indicate a life in which art and religion play a role.
