  • Everything was very crowded, making it hard to relax. People even used their roofs as extra roooms!
  • Most of these houses were used as workshops.
  • The homes here in the Indus Civilization were very small, with strong roofs.
  • Toilets, Shower Rooms, & Sanitation
  • Instead of using a bathtub, we would stand in a shower tray and pour clean water over ourselves.
  • The dirty water would pour into pipes and drain into the streets.
  • Hygiene was very different compared to today.
  • Great Bath and religous purification
  • We believe that with cleaning ourselves with water, we aren't just cleaning our bodies..
  • ..but of our minds with bad thoughts, and souls of bad actions.
  • Religous purification is very important to the Indus people.
  • Use of seals
  • Here in the Indus Valley we used trade to get all of our goods.
  • You can think of it like a brand or signature.
  • Distant trade and trade products
  • Because the Indus people didn't use money, we used the process of trade.
  • In order to get your goods, you have to exchange things. For example, wheat etc.
  • Some people would like to add seals with a symbol on it so you know who made it.
