But the forms of this quest have greatly changed.
This exhibition of Agropolis-Museum wants to show the most significant facts of the agro-food development, essentially in the euro-mediterranean region.

The pre-agricultural times
correspond to collecting, hunting and fishing. It started approximately 3 million years BP.

The agricultural times
began with the development of agriculture simultaneously at six points in the world. It lasted from  10000 years BP up to the 19th century.

The agro-industrial times
began in England with the industrial revolution. It lasted from the 19th century up to nowadays.
 

The lenght of these periods is very different
The oldest human vestiges known up to nowadays are dated 3 million years BP, agriculture started around 10000 years BP and the agro-industrial times have only 150 years.
If man had appeared on January 1rst, agriculture had started on the second half of December and the agro-industry on December 31st, late in the evening.
