Around 6,000 years ago the hunter-gatherer way of life was gradually being replaced by a simple farming economy, thus further modifying their habitat.
These Neolithic or New Stone Age people raised sheep, pigs and cattle, and grew cereal crops.
Small family groups roamed the thickly wooded landscape in search of food using simple stone tools such as hand-axes and scrapers.
The total population of the area in those days may have been as low as 40.
This is about the history of the county Warwickshire situated in the English Midlands.
Historically, bounded to the north-west by Staffordshire, by Leicestershire to the north-east, Northamptonshire to the east, Worcestershire to the west, Oxfordshire to the south and Gloucestershire to the south-west.
