Answer from Dfoofnik: The Mediterranean Sea became an invaluable resource for civilization, rather than a barrier between lands. The temperate climate provided for diverse and abundant agriculture, substantial trade, and the exchange of knowledge and technology throughout the region (although this was frequently due to wars and military expeditions). Relatively smooth waters helped trade and cultural exchange across the Mediterranean Sea, but it also invited hostilities among the rulers of disparate social systems.
Latitude has a major influence on the climate of a region because the higher the latitude is, the closer to the poles you are getting and less sunlight gets to the poles compared to the equator which always has direct sunlight due to the location of the sun. Because the equator receives more sunlight, the climate is warmer. Because the poles receive less sunlight, the climate is colder.
