The Mesolithic is the transition between the [[Paleolithic]] and [[Neolithic]] between 10,000 BC and 7,000 B.C. Humanity is still engaged in hunting and gathering but the last ice age has ended.The Mesolithic is a time when climate change changes altered ecosystems, and the type of game available hunt vary significantly. Many animals became extinct and others migrated to higher latitudes. Bison and reindeer migrated north and type of hunting was, hunt that remained like deer deers and wild boar boars was much more difficult to capture.
In the Middle East the climate temperate rain climate changed to a progressive desertification which caused a slow evolution of human behaviorbehaviour. <br />Gradually Mesolithic human societies were becoming sedentary, grouped in more or less permanent settlements and began a slow transformation from hunting and gathering to agriculture and grazing. New foods that previously were not consumedappeared.
Note that this time does not break with the previous one, but there was continuity and a slow transformation towards sedentary, task specialization and the first hierarchies that eventually led to the [[Neolithic | Neolithic]].
