Cities and Writing

Cities and Writing

“And as the cities grew and flourished, so too did human creativity and ingenuity: the plough, the potter’s wheel, the sailing boat, the draw loom, copper metallurgy, abstract mathematics, precise astronomical observations, the calendar, writing and methods of making permanent records—all these are advances that accompanied the rise of the city five to six thousand years ago.”
