Rise and Fall of the Indus Valley Civilisation: a perspective



The Indus Valley Civilisation lasted from the late fifth to the second millennium BC, developed a vast network of well planned settlements and engaged in long distance trade with Egypt and Mesopotamia. The civilisation was referred to as Meluhha in Mesopotamian sources – a name which still exists in India for many fertile agricultural region.

This is introductory preview to this remarkable trading power of antiquity. From next month, I will be releasing regular videos uncovering the rise and fall of the Indus Valley Civilisation, featuring in-depth analysis and research showing the opening stages of the world-system of trade and exchange which began with the first stages of the development of Neolithic agriculture and trade based civilisations.

In the series we will draw wide comparisons with the other great civilisations of the ancient world.
