In Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age, acclaimed science journalist Annalee Newitz takes readers on a mind-bending adventure into the deep history of urban life. Investigating across the centuries and around the world, Newitz explores the rise and fall of four ancient cities with sophisticated civilizations: the Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük in Central Turkey, Pompeii on Italy’s southern coast, medieval Angkor in Cambodia, and the indigenous metropolis Cahokia, where East St. Louis is today. Through cutting-edge archaeological research, Newitz lends insight into how these cities and their populations may reveal something of our own fate.
