    Since the late s, archaeologists have been concerned with the origins and development of craft specialization in early civilizations. More recently, some have examined the organization of production, the identities of artisans, the use and consumption of the goods they produced, and the cultural and social meanings of those objects. as societies become more complex, the more complex things can be produced and in greater quantity (mainly due to division of labor) explain the concept: division of labor individuals divide up labor across and within trades (specialization). this increases productivity because individuals dont have to know how to do everything, but can become.

    A core tenet of complex society was a transition from agrarian and kinship societies to complex, industrial societies. The transition occurs as a result of specialization in the means of labor, with some people rising to power as rulers and administrators, while others remained as food producers. This was one of the first divisions of labor. When specialization occurs it is when one person does one aspect of a job and voluntary exchange is when buyers and sellers engage in market transactions. It satisfies both the producer and consumer. What is rational decision making?

Archaeological data from Huexotla, an Aztec-period site in the Valley of Mexico, are used to test the proposition that Mexican states arose and expanded to facilitate specialization and market exchange. By and large, this proposition is not supported by the Huexotla data.

During Early Aztec times, the Valley of Mexico was divided into a number of small, autonomous city-states. Specialization: a social phenomenon of human organizations each concentrating their efforts on a limited range of tasks to increase efficiency and productivity The increased production achieved by specialization is the result of the division of labor where each worker specializes in doing a particular task rather than being a jack of all trades.

Complex societies typically have political formations called states: societies with forms of political and economic control over a particular territory and the inhabitants of that territory. The other defining feature of complex societies are cities: relatively large and permanent settlements, usually with populations of at least several.

Division of Labour. Division of labor is a complex concept: its theorization in economics establishes links between division of labor and other important concepts capturing various forms of economic dynamism, such as capital accumulation, growth, specialization, dynamically increasing returns to scale, complementarity, exchange, and indivisibility.Although these complex societies and civilizations have certain defining characteristics in common, each is also known for unique cultural achievements and contributions.

a Civilizations share certain common characteristics of religion, job specialization, cities, government, language and writing systems, technology and social hierarchy.In free markets, specialization and exchange encourage people to engage in those activities for which they are the most productive.

Trade protection stifles this process, so that total output falls. And, when this occurs, we begin the long trek down the road to the general impoverishment of our society- -in the name of “protecting” those.
