The Agricultural Revolution resulted in many inventions and many more important things that we use today or in other words used to involve in new ways. It resulted in permanent settlements that led to new things such as culture, religion, and government, which without these things we wouldn’t be the society we are today. There are so many Agricultural Revolutions in history but the first one ever which was in Mesopotamia was most significant since it was the first and resulted in many things. This Revolution was the founder of many things such as tons of Technological Advancements. But first, it all started when humans commenced learning how to produce their own food instead of hunting and gathering for food. In the Paleolithic Era, Humans or Hominids would migrate with there food and travel all around which resulted in not having a basic settlement nor religion or even government. But when Humans started to settle many new ideas came to them such as the many things The Agricultural Revolution is known for.
Many of the technology invented in this era known as The Neolithic Era, is still use today. Wheels, Boats, Plows, Irrigation systems, looms to make clothes, and many weapons were some of the many examples of technology invented in this era. But none of this would have come to be if humans were never in a permanent settlement or never learned how to grow their own food. During the development of these settlements, the Mesopotamians created laws and systems of government that impacted many of our societies in today’s world. Many of these young civilizations were ruled by a king. For example, Around the time 2334 BC, a king named Sargon ruled over Sumer, the name of one of the many civilizations around this time. Sumer was one of the various settlements that grew to a city soon to be an empire leading to one of the first empires in history. One empire that rose from Sumer after Sargon’s fall was Babylon.
Then grew a king named Hammurabi, which who made a series of 282 laws known as Hammurabi’s code. These included many laws that keep the citizens of Babylon in check including the famous law of “an eye for an eye”. The Kings of all these city-states, empires, and settlements ruled there land bylaws and without them, there would be no rule.
The Agricultural Revolution resulted in a growth of culture and religion in settlements. Now since that, they learned all about Agriculture and created many tools to help them farm the people of ancient Mesopotamia had more time to focus on regular things that we now do almost every day. Arts, Culture, and music were not very common in The Paleolithic Era since humans were moving around for food only and constantly think of food. But now since settlements start to grow many people picked up hobbies such as pottery making and many more arts that shape their civilization to the legacy they are known for today. The development of religion affected how many lived their lives in Mesopotamia. They made Ziggurats which are buildings to worship there goddess and gods because many of the people in these settlements believe in many gods and goddesses and most of them were based on nature.
They had a sun god, a moon goddess, a river god, and many others. They prayed to these gods and goddess for luck in there farming and many of there other daily activities. Culture grew and grew in this period with the inventions of many more types of arts and music and more things that a Culture provides.
Every civilization has a unique Culture that makes people who they are and why they are so unique that’s why the development of Culture in The Agricultural Revolution and Religion is so important.
