This is a short video offering an overview of the developments from the end of the Ice Age, to the establishing of farming practices. Increasing knowledge about the environment, combined with increasingly dense human communities, led to increasing competition for resources. This in turn led to practices such as irrigation and the herding of animals - the beginnings of agriculture. Warmer climates meant more predictability with crops, leading to the domestication of some plants and animals. Villages, cities and agrarian civilisations developed.
