The Indus Valley Civilization

Post  Roberta2000 on Thu Oct 30, 2014 7:38 pm

The Indus valley civilization was around 2500 B.C in the western part of South Asia, in what today is Pakistan and Western India. It is often called the Harappa civilization. It is the least well known ancient civilization. It was discovered in the late 19th century. Their writing is not deciphered yet and this makes it hard to find out more things about them. They had no monuments dedicated to their gods and they had modest burials. They also had technological advances such as plumbing, engineering, complex city planning, system of weights and measures, and even metal workings!

The Indus Valley Civilization

Nice briefed information! Did you know that the Indus Valley Civilization is one of the oldest ones, even though it was just recently discovered? We barely know anything about them and we can’t even read their writing system. We have many ideas of what they may be referring to, but we have no applied sources. The Harappa(n) Civilization is a well built-up structure and they had a very diverse culture, as well as civilization. They achieved many things, that for their time, was considered to be impossible.

Great topic Roberta!! That was some very good information.
Harappan was a very interesting city because they liked to creat things with clay an they would make different typs of games to intertain themselves.
Good work

Nice post, everything that you said is true, but did you know that the people of the Indus valley were great traders, they traded goods with empires as far as ancient Mesopotamia.
