Indus Civilization by Andrew Payson and Rolando

Hello. Welcome to Mohenjo-Daro! Mohenjo-Daro is a big city in the Indus Valley Civilization. It is next to the Indus River in Southeast Asia. Mohenjo-Daro was first founded around 2600 B.C and was one of the world's first cities. Mohenjo-Daro means "Mound of the Dead".
Our homes are made out of superior mud bricks. The bricks are superior for they were dried in a kiln unlike other ancient civiliazations. Some houses were bigger than others.
Showers, toilets, sanitation?... Our toilets have brick seats. They were flushed with water from jars. To shower people stood in a brick shower tray and poured water over themselves.
People use the Great Bath to physically bathe and spiritually bathe. We believe that bathing washes away sins. This is practiced by modern day Hindus.
We use seals to sign receipts or stamp things that we own. We use this stamp because most of us cannot write.
Our trade system reaches out very far to Afghanistan. We trade our well made mud bricks for valuable minerals that come from other countries. We travel by boat on the Indus River.
