Harappa

When archaeologists discovered the 5,000-year-old site of Mohenjo Daro in Pakistan, they found that the city demonstrated an exceptional level of civic planning and amenities.

Wastewater from these was led into well-built brick sewers that ran along the center of the streets, covered with bricks or stone slabs. Cisterns and wells finely constructed of wedge-shaped bricks held public supplies of drinking water.

The Indus Valley Debate: Language, Script, Identity, Complexity

Recently a friend of mine pointed me to an article from The Independent on The Indus Valley Civilization, that posed the question: Was the Indus script really a script, or was it just a symbol system? Hidden within this question are several others: Were the Indus people capable of something as complex as a script? What language did they speak and/or write? and Who were they? First, some background. The Indus Valley Civilization was centered on the Indus river and grew and flourished between…
