The urbanization of any ancient city has the best advantage of being seen through our modern day eyes. Looking at the evidence recovered from various sites definitely poses some problems for scholars in trying to place it in the context of the time-line of that city; yet these scholars have the knowledge of the end result of our modern-day societies. Archaeologists and classics scholars know historical trends of human socialization and urbanization for hundreds of years in societies unrelated to ancient ones. Despite all of these advantages, however, it is hard to place exact definable events on the timeline of an ancient society because of basic constrictions of things like lack of records and buried evidence. Archaeologies must therefore decode what they find and make various hypotheses and proposed methods and reasons of urbanizations for these cities. Egypt has long been known, even by non-classical scholars, to have a rich history of Kings, architectures, artifacts, etc. Most of our modern day connotations however come from a post-urbanized Egypt. It is in our interest to look before that to try and determine the actual beginnings of the urbanization of Egypt and place evidence in a logical, contextual place. Christiana Köhler provides us with an overview of the known evidence and possibilities of evidenc0e for the urbanization of Egypt. Much of the evidence can be separated in social, political and economic categories, which are probably some of the most basic requirements of an urbanized society. She states the theories behind the creation of the Old Kingdom have been a long time in development and been based off of many different things over the years. Deciphering the ideologies and physical unification of Egypt has, over the years, required someone to step back and take a look at everything as it relates into one, but ultimately it can be concluded this urbanization did not occur quickly. According to Kö hler one of the earliest shifts towards the
Urbanization is a socio-economic process by which an increasing proportion of the population of an area becomes concentrated into the towns and cities. The term is also defined as the level of population concentration in urban areas.

Urbanization is the process by which people living in the rural areas shift to the urban areas in order to find a better life.

Urbanization is the environmental growth of urban areas based on the migration of people that are from rural areas, and suburbs into bigger cities. I will clarify the factors that cause urbanization and the changes to the environment, and also the effects that it has on the population. I will identify the challenges and benefits of urbanization along with examples of current and historical events of each challenge or benefit.

URBANIZATION AND ITS EFFECTS ON DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA
MISBAHU B BULMUO
Warren (2003) defined urbanization as the movement of people from communities concerned chiefly or solely with agriculture to other communities generally larger whose activities are primarily centered in government, trade, manufacture or allied interest. It is also seen as the movement of population from rural to urban areas and the resulting increasing proportion of a population that resides in urban rather than rural areas….
Urbanization is the physical growth of urban areas as a result of rural migration and even suburban concentration into cities, particularly the very largest ones. The United Nations projected that half of the world's population would live in urban areas at the end of 2008. By 2050 it is predicted that 64.1% and 85.9% of the developing and developed world respectively will be urbanized.
Urbanization is closely linked to modernization, industrialization, and the sociological process of rationalization….
