Historical References and Modern World: The Story of Pastoralists

“Early farming communities had to learn how to make the best use of the land which they occupied. For some this meant focusing more on crops than animals, for others, in less fertile landscapes, it meant focusing more on raising livestock. In the grasslands and highlands of Eurasia, the dry climate and poorer soil made it hard to make a living from growing crops. In these regions, small groups developed a lifestyle based on keeping flocks and herds of animals. These groups became the first pastoralists. Animals, particularly sheep and cattle, require large amounts of grazing land to feed on, and need to be regularly moved from place to place to find fresh pastures. A pastoral economy, therefore, demands much more land than one based on crop-growing and supports a smaller population. Most pastoral societies, therefore, consist of small groups which tend to follow a nomadic or semi-nomadic way of life. In many cases, there is an annual cycle of grazing the herds in cooler, mountain pastures during the summer and bringing them down to warmer grasslands in winter. They live in a world that we have no clue about. Nomadic tribes still exist in the modern world and to help you explore all of them with the syllabus of Class 9, Extramarks brings to you the best of Pastoralists in the Modern World with elaborate descriptions, videos, interactive tutorials and case studies to help you with better understanding about the perspective into lives of people who survive with nature.
