Underground cities are nothing new to our world. They have been around as a form of protection since Bronze Age. They were settlements in the Byzantine period, to protect the citizens from increasing invasions. Thelocal residents built underground cities for protection and religious purposes.
In Turkey, the Cappadocia area has many underground cities founded within. There are about 40 underground cities. Can you imagine the secrecy that had to take place during and after the building of the cities to prevent invaders from knowing they were there? It astounds me, every time I think of it. :o)
