Do you think ancient societies were as concerned about the environment as modern societies are today? Do you think they took care of the environment better than we do, or did they also contribute to the destruction of the environment as some societies do today?

  • sociology -

    Ancient societies had far fewer people than we do today. But they used everything in their environment they could. Early British cut down most of their trees. Horses and other beasts of burden left their manure on roads. Most cities didn't have adequate sewage disposal or clean water.

    If you post your answers, we'll be glad to critique them.
