World Civilizations: The Global Experience, Combined Volume, 6th Edition, by Peter Stearns, Michael Adas, Stuart Schwartz, and Marc Jason Gilbert Published by Pearson. Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. : Origins and Development The Transformation of Material Life Redefining Self: From Tribe to Village to City With the development of agriculture, humans began to transform more and more extensively the environments in which they lived. A growing portion of humans became sedentary farmers who cleared the lands around their settlements and controlled the plants that grew and the animals that grazed on them.

The domestication of animals also gave rise to pastoralism, which has proved to be the strongest competitor to sedentary agriculture as a way of life throughout most of the world. Pastoralism, or a nomadic herding way of life, has thrived in semiarid areas such as central Asia, the Sudanic belt south of the Sahara desert in Africa, and the savanna zone of east and south Africa. These areas could not support dense or large populations, but they have produced independent and hardy peoples. Nomads were well versed in the military skills needed to challenge more heavily populated agrarian societies.

When combined with other objects from the same site and time period, they give us a fairly good sense of the daily activities and life cycle of the peoples who created them. As we have seen in the Document on cave paintings, of all the material remains of the Stone Age era, none provide better insights into the social organization and thinking of early humans than works of art. Much of what we know about gender relations, or the status of males and females and the interaction between them, has been interpreted from the study of the different forms of artistic expression of Stone Age peoples.
