Life before Agriculture: Humanity’s Forgotten Prehistory

Lecture no. 1 from the course: Plus Pilots: Life before Agriculture: Humanity’s Forgotten Prehistory

Life before Agriculture: Humanity’s Forgotten Prehistory

| 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

 Join archaeologist Professor Suzanne Pilaar Birch to discover what the fairly new school of archaeological science can tell us about life before agriculture at the continental scale of human migration, since our species first emerged in East Africa 200,000 years ago, to the earliest agricultural societies which appeared around 12,000 years ago—all the while, adapting to the diverse environments around the world. Using insights gained through detailed case studies and cutting-edge scientific methods, you’ll see what guided human decisions about what to eat, where to live, when to move, and how to acquire what was needed for daily survival.
