The first major development in the Neolithic era was the improvement of tools. Many tools had been made of wood, stone, and flint. But at the beginning of the Neolithic civilization the tools began to develop and become constructed with copper.
Another big thing to happen during the Neolithic civilization was the development of the arts and architecture. Throughout the civilizations many cities had palaces and temples. This shows the there government and religion were very complex. They have also had many people who were very intelligent at decorating buildings and much of there work can be seen in museums.
The new technologies that were being developed were very important. They are so important because we use most of them still today. A few of the first technologies to be developed were the first calendars which were developed to tell farmers when to plant and harvest their crops. Another important technology was the development of sewing, people learned how to sew clothes from animal hair or vegetable fibers.
Probably the most important development from the Neolithic civilization was the development of farming. When people started to farm they stopped there nomadic ways and settled down. 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.
Thanks to all of the developments of the Neolithic civilization we are able to have many of the things we have and use today. Well, if you did not know the Neolithic civilization was the best before this, then you know it now.
