  • Description

    This volume presents a series of articles by architects, architectural historians and archaeologists on the study of urban areas. Cities were in ancient times, as they continue to be today, hubs of economic, social and cultural development. The complexity of the ancient urban fabric as well as the factors affecting its development raise questions that concern the research fields of archaeology and architecture and demand a multidisciplinary approach between the two fields. The volume brings together architects and archaeologists in order to tackle the different yet converging ways in which the two disciplines approach and try to understand ancient and modern cities. Using case studies, architects and archaeologists address the methods that the two disciplines employ in the study of the urban environment.
