      Hello Everyone -

      I am recently read 'Dawn of Empire' and am currently reading 'Empire Rising', both by Sam Barone. 

      In these books he calls the Mesopotamian farmers and villagers "Dirt Eaters".  I tend to recall this being slang for ancient farmers but can't seem to find the reference for it.

      Am I correct or am I going daft?  Anyone know id this is indeed slang for farmers?
