Something a lot of people don't understand is cities built upon cities and those cities built upon civilizations. We think of ancient civilizations and ancient cities but we dont think about the ancient cities that are built upon even older civilizations/cities.
Example: There is a book called The Four Cities of Troy. It shows how archeologists were delving in the ruins of the ancient city of Troy. So when they were digging in the ruins they digged more than they intended to and they discovered ruins of another civilization under the ruins of Troy. This city they determined was alive way before Troy, it was a lost city under the sands.
When these archaeologists were delving into the ruins of the ancient city they learned that there were ruins of a city more ancient than that. So they started frantically digging onto that one and dug some more until they found another one and before they got through digging they had dug down and they had discovered that civilizations in that area had been there so far back into history that at different times in history some of the cities had been destroyed, had become completely covered up with sand and dirt, until another people came along and didn't even know it was there and built another
civilization on top of it. This happened four different times, hence the title of the book.
