I’d like to write about a fantasy city like Çatalhöyük.
"I want to build a house. Where the fuck shall I put my house? On top of another fucking house, that’s where."
"I hear somebody invented roads. Fuck that bullshit. They’re wasting valuable house space. Look, there’s a house with houses on only five out of six possible sides. Imma add five fucking houses to compensate."
This bit of prehistory always seemed quite dry when I originally half-heartedly studied it. I knew the Neolithic in Asia was pretty much the most important thing, I just didn’t care. Now I look at it again, it’s great.
