Welcome to Mohenjo-Daro in modern day Pakistan, during the time period of 3300 B.C - 1600 B.C.
We also use the rivers for religious ceremonies, drinking, washing, and for irrigating fields.
We use the rivers for travel and trading.
This is the Great Bath,it is used for bathing and getting spiritually clean.
When you get spiritually clean you are washing away bad deeds/sins.
There are no windows facing the street so there is less noise and dust.
Our homes are made from mud bricks heated in a kiln so that they are stronger and last longer.
In our shower rooms, instead of having a shower head we pour water from pots onto our heads and then the water drains out into the main sewer in the streets.
We "flush" our toilets by pouring water into them which clears out the toilet carrying the waste through the sewers and into the main sewer in the street.
We used seals because most people could not sign their name.
We use seals (stamps) to show ownership of something or as a signature on a receipt.
