A Town Without Streets

Can you imagine a town without streets? Catal Huyuk in Central Anatolia in Turkey was one such town. The town had no streets! How did the people move about the town? They walked across the flat rooftops of the houses. This was possible because the houses touched another. As there were no streets, there were no front doors either. Entrances to the houses was through the roofs.
Catal Huyuk hummed with life 9000 years ago (it is the earliest known city). Then for some mysterious reason the people deserted the quaint town and it fell into ruins. Excavation of the city began in 1961.
