comment Why were ancient cities protected by walls?
Wow, they'd burn the fields on the farms?? That sounds nuts. Being a farmer in those days sounds pretty dangerous. Plus if you had no farms or farmers after an attack, you would have no food. Did they really do that?

@YannisRizos So does that mean that farming was a high-risk career in those days? Especially given that you would likely have to travel some distance to reach the walled town! It's not like they'd be ploughing fields near the town entrance, after all.
