Storyboard Text

  • Welcome to Mohenjo-Daro! About 5000 years ago a group of nomads from Sumaria entered Northwest India and found soil so fertile along the banks of the Indus River, they settled there shortly after arriving.
  • Homes have thick walls to keep in cool air during the hot summer months.There aren't any windows on the main street to keep out dust and noise, but there are side windows to let in light.
  • We have created one of the worlds first flush toilets,which exist in many homes and is connected to a common sewage pipe. Most houses also have a private well.
  • The Great Bath is used for religious purposes to purify and renew the well being of the bathers. To enter the Great Bath,you can walk down your choice of two wide staircases.
  • We use seals to show who owns a sack of grain or that the correct city tax had been paid. Each one has been baked with writing and pictures carved in with a copper tool.
  • A boat,like this one,is used to trade items,such as pots,beads,cotton,metals,gold, pearls,and silver. Seashells, for ornaments ,are traded from over 800 km away!
