Provide three examples of how life change between the Paleolithic period and the Neolithic period?
1. Movement: Paleolithic people moved with herds because it was their food source, they had to, they were hunters. In the Neolithic period, the people made permanent homes, had farms and a sense of homeland.
2. Religion: Very apparent in Neolithic, they had priests, sacrifices, rituals, burial practices and graveyards. All that is known for religion in Paleolithic is that the role of Shaman MAY have existed.
3. Gender/Class Status: Paleolithic period, male/female bones buried together, there was a sense of equality. There was also no evident class status, people didn't "own" more than others. Neolithic, sometimes matriarchal sometimes patriarchal for gender. Nobility begins, there is a hoarding of food and a potential to become more wealthy.
