Class 6th Chapter 3: From Gathering to growing food
The beginning of farming and herding .When people, about 5 to 10 thousand years ago, saw the natural processes of the growth of plants, falling of seeds from fruits, and then sprouting into more plants, they started collecting seeds and protecting them from animals and birds. And this is how people first became farmers They also started keeping and rearing animals such as dogs, sheep, goats, pigs, etc. This is known as herding Different plants are grown in different regions and different time periods, as per their natural conditions. Similarly, different animals also need different environments to live and grow.
Nomads to Natives As growing of plants needs time, people who started farming began staying in one place for long periods of time. They protected the plants, watered, weeded, and tilled the soil, and ultimately harvested the crops after some months or years. Those crops were then stored (for both food and seed) in large pots, baskets, and underground pits. We can also think of animals as a 'store' of food, because if they are reared properly, they can give us food (milk, eggs, etc.) for a long time.
First farmers and herders -Burzahom Guftral Scientists and archaeologists have found evidences of plants, animal bones, and burnt grains in places where the first farmers and animal herders lived.

Archaeologists have also found traces of houses, huts, and pit-houses (houses dug in the ground) in some sites. They found stone tools such as mortars and pestles (used to grind grain) which were different than the tools used in the Paleolithic Era (the Stone Age period of history). So they named them Neolithic Era (the New Stone Age period of history) tools. Earthen pots that were used to cook and store food were also found.
