GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
Students in one of my classes design their own city on the last day of class, and, invariably, they design a city with streets. But one of the earliest examples of a city -- Catalhöyük, in south-central Turkey -- was built without streets: people walked over the roofs of the buildings and entered the buildings via holes in the roof! Catalhöyük was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2012. www.catalhoyuk.com/site/architecture
