In today's class, we will begin to examine what we know about systems and how prehistoric humans began to settle down and develop systems to help them sustain themselves in one area. We will examine their ideas (based on artifacts), values, and the formation of religious ideas (beliefs) and practices (rituals). We will also look at how what they valued and understood (believed) about the world shaped their development of systems: economic, political and social systems.
You will be assigned to a group in today's class and begin to explore and examine an ancient civilization in understanding more about how they lived, how they began to develop tools and methods that allowed them to settle into an area and how they began to organize their society in a much more complex and structured social, political and economic system. Your group will focus on how their values and ideas and beliefs began to also develop and the role religion played in influencing their daily life and affected how they organized their society.
