Description

Excerpt from Annals of the Association of American Geographers, 1922, Vol. 12 Stock-raising in the ancient Mediterranean world bore the unmis takable impress of its environment. It was conditioned primarily by the summer drought. This destroyed pasturage in the lowlands for two to six months, according to the latitude, and permitted the shallow rooted herbage to survive only on swampy coastal belts, deltaic ats and mountain-locked lake basins in which the ground-water table was high. Such choice but limited spots furnished the wet meadows or marsh pastures, which the ancients reserved for their brood mares, horses and fine cattle, and which they sometimes guaranteed against failure in exceptionally dry seasons by artificial irrigation. Yet even these grassy areas shrank to mere patches of green as the summer advanced, unless the streams which watered them owed down from high moun tains with lingering hoods of snow.
