What lies beneath the surficial evidence of the Anthropocene is the organicism of deep time - and it permeates this wonderfully rich journey through culture and climate, fever and floods, preserved in mud and material, emitted in detritus, debris, and deposition. Through Time and the City weaves a seductive (and serious) narrative through the sumptuous (and slippery) geologic landscape layers of Rome, revealing and reflecting nothing less than the living core of the Eternal City's history, and through it, the complex stories of our time. - NINA-MARIE LISTER, Associate Professor and Director, Graduate Program in Urban Planning, Ecological Design Lab, Ryerson University
