History's Mysteries: The Lost Indus Valley Civilisation

The Lost Indus Valley Civilisation

India’s oldest civilisation, the ancient peoples of the Indus Valley, are considered one of the greatest civilisations in history. This was an advanced culture with a highly sophisticated sewage and drainage system, and an incredibly hygienic way of life.

The ruins of one of their cities was discovered in 1832, and from that find, it was discovered that the civilisation spread from India, to modern Pakistan and Afghanistan.

There is no record found in any history documents of these people having armies, slaves or being involved in any war, so what happened to them, and why did their civilisation die out so quickly?

What do you think killed the Indus Valley Civilisation?
