The City Through History

The City Through History programme is run by academics from Durham University.

We live in a world that is ever more urban – on every inhabited continent, the proportion of people living in cities has grown in the last two centuries. Cities are not a new thing – and this course will help you understand their history, and to understand why they have become so central.

The course will begin with a key question: what is a city? We will look at examples from across the globe, over two millennia - and at the end we will come back to that question.
