Four Lost Cities By Annalee Newitz free pdf download. Four Lost Cities is a fascinating exploration into the deep history of urban civilization. It chronicles the rise and fall of four ancient cities: Çatalhöyük in Central Turkey, Pompeii on Italy’s southern coast, Angkor in Cambodia, and Cahokia, which was located near the present-day East St. Louis, by the Mississippi River.
Annalee Newitz’s book delves into the complex interplay of environmental shifts and political instability that led to these cities being deserted. It also sheds light on the often-overlooked workers who constructed these cities and left behind monuments that have stood the test of time. This journey into our forgotten past may also hold insights into our own future.
