Animals such as sheep and goats were used forfood, shelter, and clothing. Deserts and Mountains. The mountains in the Arabian Peninsula covered most of the Border of the peninsula. With Mountains ranging from 1000 feet to 12000 feet high they served as good natural protection. The weather in the mountain areas were cool most of the time and very cold in the winter. The average annual rainfall was about 20 inches, so it was common to rain often. People who decided to live in the mountains would make their houses out of mud brick, and since the ground wasn't very level, people would build terraces to farm onand build their house on. Since the ground was very rocky and not level, water storage was very difficultPeople stored water inhollowed out tree trunksand in the sides of the terraces they built for farming.Also they would need a way to disperse the water, which is why they made irrigation systems Livability rating: 3.5 out of 5.The deserts had villages to live in or you couldbe a nomad, the deserts were also very hotduring the day and verycold at night.Trade rating: 4 out of 5Since the desert covered a ¾ of the arabian peninsula so lots of items come through this area.
