What is happening in South East Asia in 3500BCE

Stone Age farming

South East Asia is home to some of the oldest agriculture in the world, with small Stone Age farming communities growing millet, beans and yams, and keeping chickens, pigs and water buffalo.

Hunter-gatherers

These farming societies are few and isolated, however. Most of South East Asia is inhabited by hunter-gatherer peoples, making their homes in the dense forests which cover much of the landscape.
