Hello!

What does it mean "to turn the history on end"? Maybe to change it drastically?

Here is a context: "The invention of agriculture turned our history on end. It was less than 10 000 years ago. Agriculture was our first great revolution."

    It means to change our history immediately and dramatically. The invention of agriculture changed the world and how people lived, and has made history.
    I know that I basically said the same thing as Dimcl and bibliolept, but I hope I helped. :p
