Martin bui's insight:

The Team found the Roman water contained 100 times as much lead in the springs, but it wasn't enough to put the people at risk. Pipes were the only source of lead, It was used for cooking pots and storing food. The argument that roman civilization had lead killing was 30 years after.

A very informational video about the collapse of the old kingdom by Fekri Hassan, an expert on civilizations and their collapses.  The main theory covered is the drought theory, that the drought ultimately dissolved the economy and the power of the pharaohs

Sabrina Levin's curator insight, April 12, 2014 2:52 AM

Archeologists discovered that the fall of Egypt was something of extreme horror. Professor Ferik Hassan believes that possibly an incredibly dreadful plague swept over them. 

Cynthia Munoz's curator insight, April 19, 2014 12:32 AM

Very useful video, actual archaeology is used to explain why the Old Kingdom fell.

In this article it explains that just how Rome wasn't built in a day it didn't collapse in one either. It explains the different methods that ultimately brought this great civilization to its demise. Some of the reasons were the mass amount of people, corrupt social hierarchy.

Climate Change Led to Collapse of Ancient Indus Civilization, Study Finds : Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution | collapse of ancient civilization | Scoop.it
A new study combining the latest archaeological evidence with state-of-the-art geoscience technologies provides evidence that climate change was a key ingredient in the collapse of the great Indus or Harappan Civilization almost 4000 years ago. The study also resolves a long-standing debate over the source and fate of the Sarasvati, the sacred river of Hindu mythology.

This article suggest that the fall of the Indus civilization was due to a drought.  The drought caused the people of the civilization to leave because the land was inhabitable. 

Esmeralda Garcia's curator insight, May 7, 2014 5:21 PM

Climate change was a key factor that led to the collapse of the Harappan civilization. The study also concludes that the Sarasvati river also was a factor that contributed to the fall of Harappa.

Cynthia Munoz's curator insight, May 17, 2014 2:09 AM
