History Alive Chapter 14
Mohenjodaro is located near the Sarasvati River. Settlements are known as the Indus-Sarasvati civilization or Harrappan civilization.
Flourished for 800 years from about 2700 B.C.E. to 1900 B.C.E. No one knows how these cities were destroyed.
Carefully planned city. Citadel rose up with nine streets below. Streets lined with houses made of mud and brick.
The Great civilization disappeared.
Some scientist believe hostile invaders were to blame.
Other scientist think natural events like floods and earthquakes struck the region around 1900 B.C.E.
Some think the Indus River changed course and people mover to the Ganges River valley in search of a steady water supply.
Inside Mohenjodaro several weights and a scale were found. Weights and a scale were found near a granary. Maybe grain was traded for various goods.
The Great Bath was a pool built 39 feet long and 8 feet deep. A well supplied the bath with water. Dirty water was removed from the water through a drain that ran along the side of the bath.
Was used for the people to bathe on hot days. It could have been used for religious rituals.
This shows how men may have looked and dressed.
Women probably wore beads in necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings. Some Indian bead makers made beads out of clay and baked them in hot ovens called kilns.
Small stone seals are the most mysterious of Mohenjodaro artifacts. Found in large numbers throughout the ruins. More than 400 pictographs have been discovered.
Many seals show animals such as buffalo, bulls, tigers, elephants, rhinoceroses, fish, and crocodiles. People may have worn them as charms. Merchants might have used them.
The Mohenjodaro sewer system carries waste away from the houses. There were pipes, drains, wells, and bathrooms. Main sewer system. Sewage then emptied into the Indus River.
People lived in the lower part of the city. Houses were made out of mud bricks. They had flat roofs and were two stories.
Some houses had windows made of alabaster. Poop people lived in smaller homes and the richer people lived in larger homes.
Enjoyed playing games. Crafter many objects for toys and parts of a game set. Game of chess was probably invented in India. Children rolled balls along clay mazes.
Clay models have been found all around Mohenjodaro. Model maybe a toy, but also shows how farmers transported their goods.
