The Neolithic Revolution was important because it contributed to advancing our cultures and the way we live today. The Neolithic Revolution was a period when our first farmers developed, which allowed people to become food producers. Once the people learned to create a constant system of developing food the populations grew which helped our world substantially. Farming helped solve the problems of starvation and increased the survival rate.

With the invention of Farming followed other great techniques and systems. To help farmers organize the harvest seasons of farming, farmers created the first calendar that not only helped the farming, but also helped organize civilization. With less time spent on hunting and gathering, Neolithic people created weaving and clothes. Now these days clothes are worn by mostly everybody in the world. Another technique that the Neolithic people invented was taming animals. Taming animals reduced the constant waiting for migrating animals to return each year, and the animals provided a good source of proteins. Also used today, the technique of taming animals is not only used as a source of food, but as a way to control pets.

In Conclusion the Neolithic Revolution was a major period for people in this world. It created a new way of living for many people and helped advance the way people survived. The Neolithic Revolution created many inventions still used today such as calendars, farming, clothes, and domesticating. Without the Neolithic Revolution the world and the people wouldn’t be the way it is.
