Storyboard Text

  • 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.
