1. In which current country would you locate the ancient cities of Harappa and Mahenjo- Daro? Pakistan 2. List five important points on what we know about the Indus Valley Culture, and explain why you consider these points noteworthy. The Indus valley region had a mature urban culture from at least as early as 2750 B.C.E Due to the mature urban culture indicates cooperation between people on a massive scale that allowed for specializations in areas you would find in an urban area such as markets and variety of products to be sold as well as a central system that fostered the growth. Carved seals indicate that these people knew how to write. Their scripts, however, remain undecipherable to this day. Because they knew how to write meant that had time to record things not spending all day as nomads looking for food, shelter, and protection. It also means they understood the importance of recording data maybe not historically but perhaps just day to day stuff such as records of sales.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
