The Peoples Chronology
12,000 B.C. -- The Peoples Chronology, edited by James Trager, mentions that around 12,000 B.C. the dog was domesticated from the Asian wolf and was used for tracking game. Fossil remains were found in a cave near Kirkuk in Iraq in the 1950s and in the 1970s the remains were dated by using the fluorine analysis.
10,500 B.C. -- Human habitations appeared even at the southernmost parts of the Western Hemisphere, where cavemen pursued guanaco and hunted a horse species that will become extinct. The fossil evidence was found 1,200 miles South of Buenos Aires in the 1970s."
"Homo Sapiens increased in numbers to roughly 3 million."
10,000 B.C. -- "Goats were domesticated by Near Eastern hunter-gather tribespeople who hadearlier domesticated the dog."
9000 B.C. -- The New Stone Age began in Egypt and Mesopotamia."
8500 B.C. -- Goats milk became a food source in the Neat East, where goats had been domesticated for the past 1,500 years (as determined by carbon 14 radio-activity decay studies on fossil evidence found at Asiab, Iran)."
8000 B.C. -- Earth's human population soars to 5.3 mlllion, up from 3 million in 10,000 B.C., as agriculture provides a more reliable food source. Where it has taken 5,000 acres to support each member of a hunter-forager society the same amount of land can feed 5,000 to 6,000 people in an agricultural society."
