Animal husbandry made things worse, as domesticated animals began grazing grasslands down to the earth.
[NP] Agriculture spread throughout the Fertile Crescent and use of pottery became more widespread. - Amesbury in Wiltshire confirmed as oldest UK settlement - "A Wiltshire town has been confirmed as the longest continuous settlement in the United Kingdom. P.] Amesbury, including Stonehenge, has been continually occupied since 8820BC, experts have found. They range in date from 8,000 "Stonehenge was for a long while thought to have been built slowly - over about 1000 years between 2,100 and 1,100 BC.During photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide from the air and transform it into sugars, carbohydrates, and other carbon-based molecules.Some of those carbon products transfer from the roots to symbiotic fungi and soil microbes, which store the carbon in soil as humus.[....] Suttie said they have found some material in the campsite that came from central Maine. - Human Occupation / South America - "The altiplano of Peru and Bolivia appears at first sight to be a very inhospitable land.[NP] 'So, already we know there were some connections with central Maine as early as between 10,000 and 11,000 years,' he said. Its high mountains, windswept plains, and icy waters of Lake Titicaca make it a stark, yet beautiful landscape. ) at a base elevation of 12,600 feet above sea level, is the ancestral home to the famous Andean animals (llamas and alpacas) and plants (potatoes and quioa).Researchers probing the ocean bottom have found 18-story-high towers of stone deep in the ocean near a section of volcanic fault ridges that extend for 6,200 miles along the Atlantic Ocean floor."9,000 B. - Jericho Settlement - "This city, located near a permanent spring a few miles west of the Jordan River was excavated by Kathleen Kenyon. Manfred Heun of the Agricultural University of Norway, along with Norwegian, German, and Italian colleagues, examined the DNA of 68 lines of cultivated einkorn (Triticum monococcum monococcum), 194 lines of wild einkorn (T. boeoticum) from nine geographical regions within the Fertile Crescent, and nine lines of a weedy einkorn (T. aegilopoides) found in the Balkans." - Fig Cultivation / Middle East - "[....] In the Middle East, figs were domesticated 11,400 years ago. In the New World, corn was being cultivated 9,000 years ago. Some scholars have proposed that the Sumerians came by ship, landing on the north shore of the Persian Gulf.' " 8,000 B. - Florida Indians - "Florida's Aucilla River is yielding evidence of the adaptability of Paleoindians to their changing environment at the end of the Pleistocene, 10,000 years ago.
There were indications of settlement after 9,000 B. For a decade, researchers from the Florida Museum of Natural History have been excavating the Page-Ladson site, and this past fall  they uncovered the ground surface of a Paleoindian habitation at a depth of 15 feet.
The first known permanent settlements appeared over 9,000 years ago and gradually developed into the Indus Valley Civilisation, dating back to 3300 BCE in western India.
It was followed by the Vedic period, which laid the foundations of Hinduism and other cultural aspects of early Indian society, and ended in the 500s BCE. - Agriculture & Farming - "The exact origins of agriculture remains unknown, but once chosen, farming developed a momentum of its own: there was no easy turning back, and the very success of the new lifestyle induced other fundamental changes.
[NP] The invention of agriculture some 10,000 years ago disrupted these ancient soil-building processes.
When humans started draining and plowing up the natural topsoil for planting, they exposed the buried carbon to oxygen, creating carbon dioxide and releasing it into the air.
Chert, jasper and quartzite were often used by humans during this period. With the right stewardship, Lal says, the agricultural soils of the world have the potential to soak up 13 percent of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere today - the equivalent of scrubbing every ounce of CO2 released into the atmosphere since 1980.
