Before that soup was known variously as broth or pottage or even gruel (although now we think of gruel as being strictly a mashed cereal grain boiled in water). Cultures came up with different approaches to soup depending on what was available locally. Borscht made from beets is from Russia. Bouillabaisse is a fish soup from the port city of Marseille France. Minestrone made of fresh vegetables and beans is from Italy. Scotch broth made of mutton or lamb root vegetables and barley is from Scotland. You will find there are soups specific to most locales. There are two main classifications of soup: clear soups and thick soups.
