antiquity.ac.uk

capital of the cruceni-belegis culture [the real trojans and sea peoples], it is only one of a number of new massive cities discovered recently.

Very sad thing is how creator of this thread has no idea of Chang'an, Chinese city, history's biggest city along with Tenochtitlan, Aztec city.

Perhaps the writer once had a bad experience in a restaurant in the Barrio Chino, near the Palacio de Bellas Artes, or perhaps in the small Cantonese place off the Zocalo?....lol

Hehe, perhaps...


Anyway, jokes aside, I can't believe how someone can forget Chang'an and Tenochtitlan, and also Teotihuacan and numerous Mayan cities, all of these were the biggest cities in our history, and shall not be forgotten.


He put Rome 1st. What he doesn't know is that Chang'an was more than 6-10 times bigger than Rome.


Anyway, anyone has freedom to choose favorite cities, If he refers to top 10 cities in his opinion than it is okay, but if he refers to discussion about possible top 10 cities of history than he must acknowledge cities I mentioned in my post...

I'd suggest that you put up a counter list of your top ten cities

I joined recently and I cannot open a thread yet, but when I do get time to it will usually be based on solving problems and further knowledge development on some matters of civilization, but I will put up some cities of our ancient ancestors that are really important to me.
