Philippe DESCOLA : Blurred frontiers between cultivated and uncultivated zones.

Philippe Descola explains that the opposition between the wild and the domestic has been conditioned through time by land settlement and diet. Even in Europe, the partitioning line between wild/domestic has not clearly been demarcated. In the German system, the transition is very gradual between deep forest and house. This line clearly differentiates the barbarian farming system (German) from the Roman one which separated the ager from the saltus. However, during the Middle Ages, the fusion of the Roman and German civilizations generated more intensive use of the lands and woods - game and olive, for example. That lessened the barriers between the cultivated and uncultivated zones.
