This drought was very sad. California as of now is also going through a drought and i hope nothing like this occur. Many people was affected by this drought in the Roman Empire.
Destony Buckley's curator insight, April 19, 2014 2:15 AM

I learned a lot about the drought through this article. I didn't realize how big the drought actually was until reading this. California is in a drought as of now and I can not imagine anything like this happening.

The Harappan people lived around the same time the Egyptians lived along side the Nile river. From the article, the Harappan's are described as a very advanced civilization, compared to others during that time. 

David Arrieta's curator insight, April 25, 2014 6:06 PM

This article gives a brief back round of the Harappan history, The article states that the Harappan civilization was the most advanced ancient civilization of its time. It also explains that there isn't much evidence as to how the civilization fell but due to recent discoveries archeologists believe it was due to the declination of the monsoons.

Lottiefultz's curator insight, May 2, 2014 2:54 PM

A team of geologists have turned up evidence that climate change played a part in the collapse of the Harappan civilization due to the weakening of Monsoons. Monsoons are seasonal winds that carry moisture from the ocean to land and bring life-giving rain.The scientists say that Monsoons are good because India would still be a desert it they did not occur yearly.

I actually thought that Egypt was the location of the earliest civilization. Egypt is known as the land of the hebrews' slavery and Menelaus' exile after the long Trojan War. Egypt is a country that contains so much history and architecture to be told.

Lottiefultz's curator insight, April 19, 2014 1:15 AM

It is believed that Egypt was not the first location of civilization. The Sumerians were said to be the first people/location of civilization.

The rain stopped for 200 years rivers also stopped flowing and went underground  lakes and ponds dried up. which caused the Agrarian economy to collapse. These are some of the  things that led to the collapse of the harappan civilization.

A video that delves into the theory that Harappa fell due to severe climate change.  This is fairly unique since most civilizations are conquered or something akin to that.
