Select from the four chapters of the class textbook previously studied. Write about the transformation of the early human hunter-gatherer system and how survival practice influenced civilizations that followed. Since history is linear in time, in researching and writing about the four chapters, patterns and methods take shape in a linear form. Ideas such as Art, architecture, rituals, governments, societies, and overall developments take place. Our modern civilization structure is a hand-me-down from previous civilizations. Such is the linearity of all things within the framework of civilizations.
