How did geographic features help shape european cultures? Provide examples to support your answers.
Europe's many peninsulas (Iberian, Italian, Balkan, Scandinavian) and islands fostered trade, exploration, and cultural exchanges by sea. The mountains of some regions (central Europe and Greece) kept some communities essentially isolated. The temperate climate of most of Europe provided good farmland, while the forests were used for housing and fuel.
