The Environment and the Classical World

For the people of antiquity, the dominant force in shaping their life, economy and culture was the natural environment. This is an exploration of the direct influence of the geography, climate and resources of the Mediterranean world upon the Greeks and the Romans, and their ingenuity in exploring the challenges.
