Chief accomplishments during this era include innovations in tools, thanks in part to the use of copper; the development of the arts and architecture; the introduction of new technologies still used today, such as calendars and sewing materials; and, perhaps most importantly, the growth of farming as a food source.

When they settled down they grew there food and had surplus food. But when food was scarce they learned to domesticate animals so they were always available to them. With the surplus food the population grew. When the amount of people increased they developed social classes. With the development of social classes they had the first cities.
