Early humans harvesting crops. Coloured artwork of Iron Age farming families harvesting and processing wheat. The wheat is being harvested in the background. At right, a man is threshing the wheat to release the grains. At left, a woman and child are using a millstone to grind the grain to produce flour. Agriculture first started in the late Stone Age (Neolithic). By the time of the Iron Age, sickles were made of iron instead of the earlier use of bronze. Original artwork published in Primitive Man (Louis Figuier, 1870).
