Working Group Navigation

organized by Luis Bettencourt, Scott Ortman (SFI), Jose Lobo, and Michael Smith (ASU)

This working group brings together a diverse group of anthropologists, archeologists and urban theorists who share an interest in empirical studies of ancient settlements across time and space, and a desire to develop general theories of their form and function. Our goal is to develop the empirical basis for comparative studies of settlement form and function and for the development of new quantitative models of urbanism that clarify the early urban implosions around the world, the prevalence of low density urbanism in certain contexts, and how such forms have been elaborated in modern cities and urban systems.
