Mapping the World's First Cities

Nate Berg looks that the geography of the earliest cities:

[New techniques show] that these very simplistic, environmentally-driven models for where people should live long term can fail very clearly when places develop a meaning that goes beyond this environmental determinism," Ur says. "Clearly this place had some cultural meaning, some cultural significance that we don’t fully understand."
