The Neolithic Stone Age is defined for the age where Neanderthals created and brought agriculture into our way of life, the nomadic hunter-gatherer era was no more. This occurred around 15,000 - 2,000 BC the ideas and advancement of farming, possibly the first sightings of livestock crossed the Channel and arrived in England. The Neolithic age was the progression of behavioural and cultural characteristics, including the use of wild and domestic crops and animals. In the United Kingdom, men are descended from the first farmers to migrate across Europe from the Near East 10,000 years ago, according to scientific research.
