Introduction to Geography

The history of Geography inherits its origin from Greek language. The first person to introduce a word geography was a Greek philosophy called Eratothenese (276-194). Hence a word geography originated from two Greek words such as “geo” which means Earth and “grapho” or “graphea” which means To draw or to describe. In short, geography means to describe the earth. Or is a description of the earth. Therefore the combination of these two words we get Geography.
