Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for this interesting diary.

I am however surprised to see you limit the first urban civilisations to four. It seems that cities have emerged in many places around the same period of time.

The Hatti and, after them, the Hittites had built big cities in Çatal Hüyük, Nersa/Kültepe and Hattusha, as well as the Egyptians in Thebes. The Jiroft civilisation is also another example.
