Before, in the Paleolithic Age, people lived in caves and camped out in the open. At first, caves were used just for emergencies, but later on became used as homes. The Paleolithic people moved locations every time the food supply (the meat they hunted, fish they fished, and the fruits, nuts, berries, honey, etc. They gathered). Then, in the Neolithic Age, people began to make permanent homes because farming was invented. This meant that people did not have to go out and get their food themselves-they could go out in their garden and get the food they planted. Then, people began to make make more and more permanent houses near each other and thus, villages were made.
