Dirt, Rocks, and Water: Irrigation Here, There, Then, and Now
Author(s): William Doolittle
Regional specialists spend most of their time studying many topics in one area. Indeed, it would be next to impossible to be an authority on a region and its complexities if one did otherwise. Topical specialists, travel widely and study numerous variations on a single theme. Each of these specializations has its pros and cons. Neither is superior to the other. They are complementary. This presentation focuses on ancient irrigation in the American Southwest and present-day parallels from other parts of the world. Similarities are striking, as are differences.
