Abstract

The study of food habits and its sources of supply have mainly focused on the Mediterranean area, neglecting other regions. The following study offers a new framework in which the Atlantic world, always throughout the complex geographical passage of the Strait of Gibraltar, becomes a basic source of grain supply for the kingdom of Majorca.
