Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Did Bernal, Hayes (or anyone) related eschatology and historical ecology directly? If you have references, please email me.

The ancient Greece and Rome were organic progenies of the civilization centers round Asia Minor. They were the New Worlds across a sea or two, somewhat deviant in their intellectualism or organized militarism.

Apart from them, Europe was a backwater of the most active trade routes and cultural exchange up until the 16th century. With Portugal and Spain the most desperate back ends. But the military experiences in the Mediterranean provided Europe with a huge naval edge.
