We all need play time and this article discusses how our ancient ancestors played. Mohenjo-Daro was the largest urban settlement from the Bronze Age in the Indus Valley. The dice found there speaks of games and other ways of relaxing that the people used during this era.

Drought Wiped out Indus Valley Civilization?

The shells of a particular kind of snail that existed in the lake during the Indus Valley civilization remain in the sediments.
Ricardo Salazar's insight:

This article is my favorite. Researches found out that about 4000 years ago by a massive dry spell. They found evidence: shells of snails who lived there next to the lake during the Indus Civilization remaining in sediments. This proves that it "contained calcium carbonate in form called aragonite and the oxygen in it showed a rise in the level of Oxygen 18, a heavy isotope of oxygen that takes longer to evaporate. These sediments correspond to the dates of the drought". Specialist determined the evidence and said it was a great source of information but they need more to conclude on this theory.

Ricardo Salazar's insight:

This article is really awesome because there are so many illustrated pictures of discoveries found on the Indus River Civilization. I think this article is very helpful because The Indus People didn't write as much as we do  and objects that are found are helping shape the history. Overall this article is a great search tool.

Ricardo Salazar's insight:

This video is really informative. I learned what the city of "Mohenjo-Daro" mean, it mean mount of the death. The cities where made by all by brick. I found this very interesting because i can now see that brick has come a long way. One awesome fact is that all bricks were made equally. I think that is really cool because there were no bigger brick or smaller they were all the same. What i found so fascinating was how each house in the city had its own water well. This Civilization was one of first to have drains in the world. Overall awesome video.

Ricardo Salazar's insight:

This video is really awesome. I was not able able to watch the whole video because its more than one hour. I watched it for 20 minutes and i have to say it is very informative. The professor who talks in the video goes in details of the civilization known as the Indus Civilization. I liked how he went over some of the information that we already had covered in class and i was able to see it more in detailed., Great video.

The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire

The rise and fall of Rome from its founding as a city to the fall of Constantinople.
Ricardo Salazar's insight:

I know most of my insights are about the rome empire and Egypt empire but i didnt want to risk of scooping out of topic. This video was really interesting like the other videos because it gave us the readers the time when the roman empire was in  power and in its climax and it also gives us when it collapse. Great way if someone was looking for that dates of the roman empire. I didnt know how big the empire was until watching this video.

After the Fall of the Romans: The Mysterious Dark Ages

Ricardo Salazar's insight:

The dark age is a really interesting topic. This video was really awesome because the video talked how about the dark age was not only in the south of Europe but also in the north. The video talked how some monks moved really up north of Europe in a remote island in england. They sacrificed their comforts because jesus had died for us.

Ricardo Salazar's insight:

I though this was very interesting because i can connect it with todays lecture .Professor Kaatz was saying that the climate in The part where Israel is now was different. It was much cooler and it rain more and now it is all dessert. In this article it also talks about that can be one of the key factors for some civilization to fall.
