The wind storm that swept through the island this week made me think about how we are staying on a midpoint between two large and significant places, making this a prime trade route. I started thinking about a couple questions that I was unable to answer, and probably never will be able to answer. How would wind storms like the one we just experienced have affected the ancient periods we are studying? How would they have coped back then? I’m sure they had some form of a routine in such situations as storms like these must have been frequent, but it makes one question how ancient cultures varied so much from our current one?
