Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Bar-Yosef and Meadow write about the origins of cultivation which occurred during the Natufian period, and the origins of animal husbandry which occurred during the Neolithic (and was not indexed for OCM [Outline of Cultural Materials] subjects). They summarize some of the geographical features, the paleoclimatological changes, and the archaeology from 24,000 to 10,000 years ago. They stress that farmers coexisted with hunter-gatherers. They believe sedentism came before cereal cultivation. And that successful agriculture (and sedentism) depended on the development of the concepts of real property and territoriality.
