Thanks for posting, Renfield. The whole area is very interesting. Seems like the concept of ‘city’ is embedded in human brains.
The book ‘After The Ice’ has a detailed look at the growth of agricultural societies in this area shortly after the Younger Dryas event, I recommend it.

Don't underestimate mud brick cities, as they can be most impressive. Bam, Iran, for one, features a great medieval citadel that withstood a devastating earthquake not too long ago.
Likewise, the palace at Timbuktu is quite something.
Five thousand years history, and what do the current inhabitants have to show for it? Not much. They are probably more savage now than they were back then.
