neolithic revolutionneolithische Revolution (ger.)

  • The first cultivation of plants and domestication of animals, which took place during the Neolithic period and radically changed the structure of prehistoric society; the development of agriculture. (OED 2003)

    la révolution néolithique [Footnote: Je veux dire celle qui marque la transition entre l’âge de la pierre polie et celui des métaux.] est la dernière avant celle où nous sommes entrés depuis quelques siècles. […] De la révolution néolithique, on doit placer le centre et le principe dans l’invention de l’agriculture.

    It is only with the ‘neolithic revolution’ and the invention of agriculture that homo sapiens comes on the scene.

    The first revolutionary advance was made when some group or groups began to cultivate plants and/or breed food animals. […] That revolution in human life may be termed the neolithic revolution.

    The neolithic revolution had initiated the New Stone Age in Egypt and Mesopotamia about 7000 years ago. In Britain or Germany its effects are first perceptible three and a half millennia later, say about 2500 B.C.

    The European population graph would certainly show at the beginning of the New Stone Age a sharp kink and upward bend comparable to what ensued upon the Industrial Revolution in England. That analogy is my excuse for speaking of a ‘Neolithic Revolution’.
