On Limestone and the Mediterranean

"The calcium in limestone makes it water-soluble and easily eroded, yet limestone builds up over eons, a stratum at a time, out of organic matter, recalling the stratified history of Mediterranean civilization"

France, Alan W. (1990). Gothic North and the Mezzogiorno in Auden's 'In Praise of Limestone'.
