Description

Have you ever wondered why some places are the focus of long-lived settlements? And what does make a settlement into a city? The monumentality of its buildings? The range of its infrastructures? Or, merely, the size and density of its population? In this seminar, we investigate the rise of urbanism in the Old World from a comparative perspective. We explore the nature of the earliest known villages in the Near East and of the first cities in Mesopotamia, India, China, and the ancient Mediterranean. Through the archaeological evidence, we look at how these urban centers were planned, built, and lived. Rome is our special case study: we will analyze and discuss the preliminary results of an ongoing UofM research project in the “eternal city”.
