Stone Age Timelines Human prehistory and the Stone Age… a timeline critique (4th edition - October 2012) by A.O. Kime for information on 'renting' this article, see Rent-a-Article In the 1820’s, in order to address the prehistory of mankind more clearly, it was thought necessary to divide it into time periods, thus a ‘three-age’ system of the (1) Stone Age, (2) Bronze Age and (3) Iron Age was adopted. Paleolithic (c 2,000,000 – c 10,000 B.C.) The Paleolithic time period is by far the longest, beginning some (circa) two million years ago to coincide with the first evidence of toolmaking and ending around 10,000 B.C. to coincide with the end of the last ice age (Pleistocene epoch). • Lower Paleolithic (two million – 100,000 B.C Mesolithic (c 10,000 – c 5,500 B.C.) Neolithic (c 5,500 – c 2,500 B.C.) This very short Neolithic time period, the last part of the Stone Age, was set-up to cover the period from the onset of farming and ending when metal tools came into widespread use.

Welcome - The Flow of History Animation: Human Population Growth Over All of History Imagine that for every million people on Earth, there was a single dot on a map. In total, that would be about 7,600 dots – representing today’s global population of 7.6 billion. But, what if we went back in time, and watched those dots accumulate over human history? When and where do the first dots appear, and when does population growth ramp up to get to the billions of people that are alive today? The History of Population Growth Today’s animation comes from the American Museum of Natural History, and it shows over 200,000 years of population growth and the major events along the way. If you consider yourself on the more impatient side of things, we suggest starting at 1:50 which will zoom you to 400 AD – the time of India’s Golden Age. It took 200,000 years of human history to get to one billion people – and just 200 years to reach seven billion. Key Population Moments Agriculture The impact of farming cannot be emphasized enough.
