    TERM EXAMINATION

    Cities began to evolve in prehistoric times when groups of nomadic hunters and foragers developed an agricultural life. In order to protect themselves and their food supplies from raids by predatory nomads, they built their dwellings within a walled area or in a naturally fortified place. Because the availability of water was also an important consideration, these settlements were usually located along a river. Such settlements led to specialization and the division of work. Markets, in which artisans could barter their specialties for other types of goods, developed. A growing priesthood contributed to intellectual life. Consequently, cities were responsible not only for the rise of commerce and industry but also of art and learning, and they played an essential role in the emergence of all great civilizations.
    Among the most notable cities of the ancient world were, in the order of their development, Thebes, Memphis, Babylon, Nineveh, Carthage, and Jerusalem. Alexandria is said to have contained more than 500,000 inhabitants, and Rome was still larger.
