Abandoned villages, towns or cities.

A ghost town is an abandoned village, town or city, usually one which contains substantial visible remains. A town often becomes a ghost town because the economic activity that supported it has failed, or due to natural or human-caused disasters such as floods, government actions, uncontrolled lawlessness, war, or nuclear disasters (image: Berlin, Nevada, example of a ghost town). Have you seen a ghost town before?
