A lost civilization located in India, Mohenjo-Daro was the largest city in the Indus Valley and was considered to be one of the world’s most sophisticated cities. This mysterious civilization was unusually advanced as compared to other civilizations at that time. Because no one really knows for sure what culture they were, they were given the name of “Harappans,” an Indus River Valley civilization. They existed from 3300 to 1300 B.C. but quite a bit different than their counterparts: Egypt, Mesopotamia, and China. Determined from various archeological finds, the Harappan people appeared to be more advanced scientifically and wealthier than other civilizations of their time.
