Summary of Annalee Newitz's Four Lost Cities Book Description:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 When I traveled to Çatalhöyük, a city that was built before cities existed, I was able to see the origins of the world I knew. The people there were a generation or two removed from nomadism, and when they began to settle in one place, it was a revolutionary idea. #2 When people passed through one of Çatalhöyük’s thousands of rooftop doorways, they entered a new phase in human society. They found themselves in an alien future where people’s identities were tied to a fixed location. #3 The Çatalhöyük Dig House is the home of hundreds of archaeologists who have worked there over the past 25 years to uncover the ancient city’s secrets. It is roughly the size of a modern city block, and is protected by a huge shade structure that arcs over the East Mound. #4 The city of Çatalhöyük was excavated in the 1950s, and since then, archaeologists have found thousands of houses that were rebuilt upon each other for over a millennium, leaving behind a treasure trove of artifacts.
