Summary

Natural resources and geographic position are not of value in themselves, but become so when exploited according to the political and economic inputs of each historical phase. Natural harbours, mineral deposits, pasture and agricultural land play different roles, on the basis of the willingness and possibilities of local communities to engage in exploitation and trade.
