Abandoned Buildings Berlin Photo Tours Expired products still sit in the cafeteria at the abandoned Meat Factory. The glass crunches underneath my shoes with every step I take, the stairway is dimly lit by diffused daylight on this wintery day.

Panoramic pictures and virtual tour of World - 360 Cities Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. Lost city Lost city is a term that can be used to a human settlement that which fell into terminal decline, became extensively or completely uninhabited. The location of many of these cities had been forgotten, but some have been rediscovered and studied extensively by scientists. Recently abandoned cities or cities whose location was never in question might be referred to as ruins or ghost towns. The search for such lost cities by European explorers and adventurers in the Americas, Africa and in Southeast Asia from the 15th century onwards eventually led to the development of archaeology.[1] Lost cities generally fall into two broad categories: those where no knowledge of the city existed until the time of its rediscovery, and those where location has been lost but knowledge of its existence has been retained in myths, legends, or historical records.

Growing in a Foreign World: For a History of the "Meluha Villages" in Mesopotamia in the 3rd Millenium BC Above: Impression of an Indus-style cylinder seal of unknown Near Eastern origin in the Musee du Louvre, Paris.

A fascinating article that gathers together all known facts about Indus settlements and trading with ancient Mesopotamia during around 2500 BCE and conjectures and implications of the facts we do know by an Italian archaeologist who is a pioneer in this kind of deep multidisciplinary analysis. The connections between these ancient Bronze age civilizations could one day help answer a lot of questions.
