Storyboard Text

  • Welcome to Mohenjo-Daro, Mohenjo-Daro means mound of the dead. The river that Mohenjo-Daro is on, is the Indus river. Mohenjo-Daro existed form 3300-160 B.C.
  • The houses in Mohenjo-Daro were made of mud brick that was fired in a kiln instead of dried out in the sun like other civilizations. A lot of people in Mohenjo-Daro slept on the roofs of their houses because it was cooler than inside.
  • The boats that the people of Mohenjo-Daro would have used were small flat bottomed craft that may or may not have had sails. Their trade network went as far as modern day Afghanistan, Minerals from Afghanistan were found in the Indus river valley. The people of Mohenjo-Daro could have used wheeled transport.
  • People in Mohenjo-Daro also had toilets and a sewer system. The houses also had shower rooms. A person would do their business and then pour water down the toilet to clear it out. The waste would go through a system of pipes. This is also how the sewer system worked. In the shower the people would just pour water on their heads
  • The people of Mohenjo - daro bathed to get both physically and spiritually clean. They did this because of their religion. Their religion is the predecessor of Hinduism. Modern Hindus still practice religious bathing.
  • In a modern day school, children learn to read and write. The Mohenjo-Darians had a language but is has not been deciphered. But most Mohenjo-Darians probably did not know how to read or write so they would use a stamp to press the symbols into wet clay.
