Storyboard Text

  • In the year right now it is 3000 B.C.
  • Welcome to one of India's biggest cities, Mohenjo-Daro!
  • We believe that we are the first people to use wheel transportation.
  • Our trading routes reach as far as modern day Afghanistan.
  • This place is called the Great Bath and this is where we wash ourselves.
  • Here our people come to practice religious bathing and wash away our sins.
  • Our houses are made out of mud brick just like other civilizations, but we dry ours in a kiln and they are stronger and last longer.
  • To keep our houses clean and keep the noise out, we only have windows facing the inside courtyard and not the street.
  • Because most people can't write to sign their the name, seals were used as a sign of ownership and/or receipt.
  • Seals are a stamp that is pressed into wet clay to make an impression.
  • Here sanitary is very important to us and we were one of the first civilizations to make a sewer system.
  • To get rid of human waste we would pour water down the toilet. Also while taking a shower we pour water on ourselves.
