“The Neolithic Revolution changed the economy from hunters and gatherers to farmers and agriculturalists. New technologies of the Neolithic Revolution facilitated the change from nomadic societies to organized, settled peoples. ... These newly agricultural societies developed their own crops to sustain their people. The Hongshan culture was a Neolithic culture in northeastern China. Hongshan sites have been found in an area stretching from Inner Mongolia to Liaoning, and dated from about 4700 to 2900 BC.Hongshan burial artifacts include some of the earliest known examples of jade working. The Hongshan culture is known for its jade pig dragons and embryo dragons. Clay figurines, including figurines of pregnant women, are also found throughout Hongshan sites. Small copper rings were also excavated.”
