I've been also watching the Teaching Company's class on the ancient city. I have to say that I think the archaeologist/professor covers a lot more in those short classes than this book does. Gates seems to veer off to other archaeological sites that are not based in a city and I'm not sure why. I do recommend the class as far as I've gotten. I think the book is best for students of archaeology rather than for people interested, as I am, in urban studies.

This book takes the reader on a tour of various ancient cities across the Mediterranean and Near East. I found some of the focus on architecture a little dry, but Gates nicely salts his narrative with excerpts of political and social history, which helps bring the cities a little more alive.

It's real strength is just how comprehensive this book is - I don't know of anything similar in scope, which makes it fantastic as a reference for anyone interested in any aspect of ancient

Wide ranging and easy to follow. This book is an excellent introduction to the archaeology and architecture of ancient cities and prehistoric sites. It begins coverage in the Neolithic and continues into the reign of Constantine the Great, the end of antiquity, and does not spend too much time on any one place or structure. Important sites are emphasized and when detail is lacking the author is sure to mention why. Overall, a great introductory text.
High Wycombe Library
Focussing on city plans and architecture, Ancient Cities looks at the cities of the Ancient Near East, Egypt and the ancient Greek and Roman Worlds.

Ancient Cities is written in such a way as to require no background in archaeology and is packed with beautiful photographs and illustrations. ^GE

I'm pretty sure I've read the first edition when it first came out, some of the photos and drawings are familiar. A fun read on the physical aspects of ancient civilizations, some of which I skipped or skimmed, I've read some of this in other works. Fantasy writers can gain insight on the non-cultural aspects of ancient life and you can use some of the maps if you still play old-school RPGs with paper and not computers. People who are not architectural nerds may find it a bit dry.

Another read from my History of Archaeology class. This book is much drier and a lot hard and less enjoyable to read.
