Type SEMINAR
Course Description The study of the ancient Mediterranean environment – the material world in which the Greeks and Romans and their neighbors lived – has been making rapid strides in recent years.  The aim of this course is to offer an overview of the impact of a flourishing pre-modern society on its natural environment, and of the ways in which people reacted to environmental challenges. We shall talk about natural resources – water, wood, land, minerals -- and about the sea and the mountains, also about diet, health and pollution, and of course about the climate. We will consider the profound problems of combining historical and scientific methods in the study of a past environment.
