The Riddle of the Indus civilization.
We know very little about this civilization, but what we know is amazing! Its beginnings can be traced back to 3300 BC – that’s more than 5,000 years ago! It spread across Pakistan, India and parts of Afghanistan. In 1992 archaeologists found the ruins of an ancient city called Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. Ancient city.
The Indus Valley people were very advanced for that time. They built large, planned cities with straight streets and brick house. These house had toilets and bathrooms, even today, many houses in India and Pakistan have no bathrooms.
The Indus people used camels, oxen and elephants to travel over land. They had carts with wooden wheels! And they had one-mast ships which they probably used to sail around the Arabian Sea. The Indus people were also very good at science. They were one of the first people to develop a system of weights and measures!
A beautiful small bronze statue of a dancer was found, which tells us that they enjoyed dancing. Archaeologist have also found bowls made of bronze and silver, pottery of very high quality and with unusually beautiful designs, children’s toys and statues of goddesses. Women wore jewellery of gold and precious stones, and even wore lipstick.
Linguists are now trying to decipher the Indus symbols which have been found on seals , small tables, pots and other things. Scientists are very curious about these people, who lived about the same time in history as the ancient Mesopotamians and the ancient Egyptians. Did these ancient civilizations know each other in ancient times? Was it the ancient Mesopotamians who first invented the sailboat and the wheel? It’s a very interesting riddle.
