That history, if still important, is being manipulated to suit individual agendas.

    During the Neolithic period of prehistory, hero celebration took the form of ancestor worship. For the first time people became connected to the land that they farmed and felt an intrinsic attachment to it. This is because of dropping nomadic hunter-gather to agrarianism due to environmental at the end of the Mesolithic.
