The author of The Life and Death of Ancient Cities, Greg Woolf talks about the history of cities in the ancient world. Why did all cities not survive? What constitutes a city? How long have humans been creating cities? All of these questions and more will be discussed in this interview!

The Life and Death of Ancient Cities is not like your dusty old history book, but presents the history, growth and decline of cities throughout the Ancient world from the Bronze Age through to Late Antiquity. This modern take on Ancient cities around the word brings the ancient world into our modern lives with rich illustrations and Woolf’s passionate global analysis.
