We examine the issues relating to the landscape change and natural resources management in the Moroccan Middle Atlas across centuries. The results of this research provide evidence of important socio-economic changes and of the existence of resources use. The survey shows that the agricultural activity had existed for several centuries as indicated by ancient terraces and travertine channels used for irrigation.

Keywords: Morocco, Middle Atlas, landscape, agricultural activity.
