Current work seems to be smudging the line between hunter gatherers and
people settling down to some purposes.  The Mesolithic turned out to have
been particularly messy.

What used to be seen as "nomadic" groups actually stayed for longer and
longer stretches where they could, and they seem to have been using millet
across parts of Eurasia around 10,000 years back.  If people were putting
in crops, then the old general arguments about fighting to protect lands in
which they invested time and energy might fit these finds.
