At some point in evolution, early man changed his focus from a wandering lifestyle to that of a settler. Instead of moving from place to place, whether in pursuit of animals or a better quality of plant food, these early people began to learn the benefits of agriculture. Making of Mankind: Settling Down looks at this shift, which occurred over 12,000 years ago, as host Richard Leakey discusses a major development in the history of mankind. Once man began staying in one place, settlements eventually developed into the earliest cities, such as Jericho.
