Storyboard Text

  • Mohenjo-Daro is located along the Indus River in modern day Pakistan. It lasted from about 3300 to 1600 B.C.
  • Our houses are made out of mud bricks that were baked in the kiln to make them last longer. Also, our windows don't face the streets, so there is less noise and dust.
  • We were the first civilization to use showers and toilets. We also had a sewage system under the main streets of our city and in every home.
  • In the great baths, we got both physically and spiritually clean. Bathing here helps to rid us of our sins and bad deeds.
  • Only our scribes could write, so we had to make seals. We used then as stamps to mark ownership of something or as a receipt.
  • Our trade networks reached as far as Afghanistan, Persia, India, and Mesopotamia. Other than boats we used wheeled transportation to trade our goods.
