In this lesson, you will discover the shift from hunting and gathering, common for the Paleolithic Age, to farming. Farming, or agriculture to be more precise, developed around 8000 B.C.E. bringing an end to the Paleolithic, or Old Stone Age and starting the New Stone Age (Neolithic Age). Also with this discovery would come the development of permanent settlements and specialization.
