From Our Editors

As Canadians, we know how relevant our climate and landscape to our socio-economic state. The same held true for the Greeks and Romans whose culture and economy were deeply influenced by the sunny climes and rugged landscapes of the Mediterranean. Classicist Patricia Jeskins explores the links between geography and other elements in The Environment and the Classical World.
