Let’s Recall

1. Complete the sentences

(a) Hunter-gatherers chose to live in caves and rock shelters because – they found

protection from rains, winds and sunlight.

(b) Grasslands developed around —-12,000 years— ago

2. Why do people who grow crops have to stay in the same place for a long time?

Solution 2:

When they plant a seed, it takes some time to grow. Depending on the type of seeds used, the time taken would vary from days, weeks, months and years. It means they had to stay in the same place to take care of the plants by watering, weeding, driving away animals and birds – till the grain ripened. Once ripened, they had to think of ways to store it. Hence, they had to stay in the same place for a long time.

3. Why do archaeologists think that many people who lived in Mehrgarh were hunters to start with and that herding became more important later?

Solution 3:

Archaeologists found the bones of many animals such as deer in the earlier levels. Hence, they could conclude that they were hunters to start with. Herding became important because they found bones of sheep and goat in the later levels.
