Since people didn't have to spend the whole day finding food they started to learn new things like taming animals, pottery,religion, medicine, security. There was also different that different people would do. For example someone is good at making tools then they will be the black smith or if someone is good at making pots then they will become the pot makers. People started to ask a lot of questions about our world and religion tryed to answer them. Early religions believed in many gods and a lot of them had sacrifices as well as having rituals like when a person got born or when the person died.
Around 6500 BC in Middle East agriculture was developed. Humans were no longer nomads, tribes had found a permanent homes. Human mostly settled near rivers because the soil was better there and they had easy access to water. Human had learned how to tame animals. This fits into my collection because civilization started when people found out about agriculture.
