The event “Worlds of the Neolithic Period” seeks to examine Neolithisation in other regions of the world through the screening of a film as well as series of round table tables and conferences.
Conference in person and live and on replay on the museum's YouTube channel.
The Neolithic Revolution is without a doubt one of the major events of human history. For a long time, typical representations of the Neolithic Period only showed it as being confined to Western Europe and the Middle East. However, in at least five or six different independent areas in the world, animal and plant species were domesticated, allowing for the management of food resources as well as the settling of human communities. The event “Worlds of the Neolithic Period” seeks to examine Neolithisation in other regions of the world through the screening of a film as well as series of round table tables and conferences.
