The rise and fall of great world cities: 5,700 years of urbanisation – mapped

Recent research, published in the journal Scientific Nature Data, transcribed and geocoded nearly 6,000 years (from 3700BC to AD2000) of human population data. The report provides a gargantuan resource for scholars hoping to better understand how and why cities rise and fall – and allowed blogger Max Galka to map the changes on his site Metrocosm.

Over the years the Guardian has produced some great resources on cities for us to learn about and consider. Go to The Story of Cities, a 51-part history of urbanisation from Baghdad to Beijing, Dubai to Dadaab

It's like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
