Some of the most extraordinary ancient cities that have been abandoned, forgotten, or hidden by time are now revealed in their full splendor. Examining the role of natural and man-made disasters, rulers and their hostile neighbors, and the fate of cities built to celebrate religious beliefs, this fascinating volume features stunning photography of major archaeological sites and recently discovered cities. Detailed reconstructions and maps trace the lost beauty and ancient wisdom embodied in the Borobodur in Java, Aphrodisias in Turkey, and Niya in Central Asia. An illuminating and thought-provoking work that builds on the recent success of numerous bestsellers about how and why ancient civilizations fail, it will prove an invaluable reference.
