Big Bang (13.75 Billion Years Ago) Human-like creatures (2.7 Million Years Ago) Paleolithic Age = 95% of mans time on earth Homo-sapiens evolved in East Africa (200,000 years ago) Migrated out of Africa 100,000 to 60,000 years ago; Asia 70,000; Europe 45,000; Americas 30,000-15,000 Migration of Humans Map Key Concept 1.1 Big Geography & the

Peopling of the Earth What was life like in the Paleolithic Era? Small hunting-foraging bands (30-40 people) Egalitarian (men=women)

Key Concept 1.2 Neolithic Revolution and Early Agricultural Societies What was life like during the Neolithic Era? New technologies increased food production Metallurgy (manipulating metals)

irrigation, wooden plows, wheels, sickles, traps, clay pots, woven baskets Bronze Age 3000 BCE (copper & tin) Iron Age 1,300 BCE Patriarchy Develops (continuity for rest of WH) Human Impact on Environment (agriculture irrigation and pastoralism overgrazing and erosion) Key Concept 1.3 Development & Interactions of Early Agricultural, Pastoral and Urban Societies Rise of Civilizations 3000 BCE (5000

China Shang 1st dynasty Ancestor worship Oracle bones and Shaman Zhou longest dynasty Mandate of Heaven Key Concept 1.3 Development & Interactions of Early Agricultural, Pastoral and Urban Societies Exceptions to the River Valley Rule

Olmecs of Mesoamerica (Central America) Chavin of the Andean Region (South America) Dont Forget About the Pastoralists Animal herders, follow migratory patterns Found in mountainous regions and/or areas with

insufficient rainfall to support other settlements No permanent settlement Spread diseases and encourage trade Key Concept 1.3 Development & Interactions of Early Agricultural, Pastoral and Urban Societies Notable Groups from Period 1 Indo-Europeans from Central Asia Horses, Aryans in India and Huns Bantus 2,000 BCE Sub-Saharan migration, spread of language, farming techniques, use of iron Hebrews Development of Monotheism, influenced development of

Christianity and Islam Phoenicians 22 letter alphabet, adopted by Greeks, influences later languages Hittites Brought iron knowledge to Mesopotamia Major Themes for Period 1 Migrations Neolithic/Agricultural Revolution Iron Metallurgy Development of Patriarchy Ancient River Valley
