Why is the wall integral to the earliest cities?

Earliest urban communities were surrounded by nomadic people coming and going

Wild animals were common during early urbanization in most places

Cities were known to have food and water, so in times of scarcity nomadic people often tried to raid cities

As more cities developed, their kings began to lead raids on other cities for plunder, slaves, and territory

Walls might have helped control slaves and other urban residents who were less than willing to cooperate with the king and his forces
