《The Life and Death of Ancient Cities : a natural history》

Introduction:

This book tells us the story of the rise and fall of ancient cities from the end of Bronze Age to the beginning of the Middle Ages It is a tale of war and politics. The story begins with the Greek discovery of much more ancient urban civilizations in Egypt and the Near East, and charts the gradual spread of urbanism to the Atlantic then the North Sea in the centuries that followed. Their story encompasses the history of  the generations of people who  built and inhabited them, whose short lives left behind monuments that have inspired the city builder ever since.
