How did early humans go from hunting and gathering to farming crops and animals. I learned that early humans started farming by picking seeds from wild plants and even domesticating some animals that they let roam for later hunting. This was done so that they had a general idea on where these animals would be when the time for hunting came. The start of farming is something that I would consider to be a great achievement made by mankind because it allowed us to sustain a constant food source but left room for people who still want to partake in traditional hunting. The case study helped educate me on a field that I never really cared to learn about but after going through all the information given to me I now realize how diverse the category of agriculture is such as a starting point of just how did we think of planting seeds in the ground.
