What do we know about the Indus Valley Civilization?


Show Answer

What we do know is that the civilization lasted about 1000 years from about 2500 BCE (perhaps as early as 3000 BCE) until about 1500 BCE. We know that they built large cities with straight streets and brick houses. Archaeologists have found artifacts that suggest many other activities as well. There is no question at this point that this was a very advanced civilization. How advanced is still under investigation. Daily Life in the Indus Valley
