  • Evidence of small scale agriculture from ~23,000 years ago found in Israel

    This wasn't large scale by any means but this does predate any previously found examples of farming by thousands of years.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    This discovery doubles the age of the earliest proto-agriculture.

            There is along history of Neolithic culture using genetic selection to come up with new strains of crops like corn, flax, rice, and other fruits, vegetables and grains. It is likely that the beginnings of cultivation is older.
