THE HISTORY OF MOROCCO
A historically prominent regional power, Morocco has a history of independence not shared by its neighbors. Its distinct culture is a blend of Arab, indigenous Berber, Sub-Saharan African, and European influences.
Morocco spans over twelve centuries since the establishment of the Moroccan state by the Idrisid dynasty, without taking classical antiquity into consideration. Archaeological evidence has shown that the area was inhabited by hominids at least 400,000 years ago. The recorded history of Morocco begins with the Phoenician colonization of the Moroccan coast between the 8th and 6th centuries BC, although the area was inhabited by indigenous Berbers for some two thousand years before that. In the 5th century BC, the city-state of Carthage extended its hegemony over the coastal areas. They remained there until the late 3rd century BC, while the hinterland was ruled by indigenous monarchs. Indigenous Berber monarchs ruled the territory from the 3rd century BC until 40 BC, when it was annexed to the Roman Empire. In the mid-5th century AD, it was overrun by Vandals, before being recovered by the Byzantine Empire in the 6th century. Since independence, about 40 years ago, Morocco has achieved to tackle many social problems, mainly in education and health fields. ın fact, French left behind a well-developed industrial sector, a reasonably well planned irrigation system and an efficient transportation network. But the sudden departure of the old colonial masters had left the country without an operational political system from which a modern government could be established. Also the lack of locally trained public officers have caused to a black period of mismanagement for the young country. The kingdom of morocco is a democratic and constitutional monarchy. The current monarch, King Hassan ıı, is a member of the alunite dynasty, which has been in power for the last 300 years.

In general the country has a tropical climate, with temperatures reaching as high as 35°C (95°F) and as low as 5°C (41°F) in the Sahara. The coast has a warm, Mediterranean climate tempered on the eastern coast by southwest trade winds whilst inland areas have a hotter, drier, continental climate. In the south of the country, the weather is very hot and dry throughout most of the year, though temperatures can drop dramatically at night, especially in the months of December and January.
Rain falls from November to March in coastal areas, and the country is mostly dry with high temperatures in summer and a cooler climate in the mountains. Marrakech and Agadir enjoy an average temperature of 21°C (70ºF) during the winter.
Owing to the relatively high winter temperatures, and summers that are dry rather than unbearably humid, Morocco is an all year round destination. If you really want to avoid the heat, the best time to visit is during the shoulder seasons of April to May, and September to November.
