The video is very short but it is filled with a lot of information. They were a civilization that started to migrate from Africa to India and there they made a bountiful living. They discovered farming to continue to make a stable and healthy economy.

Harappans v. Aryans | JRMS Weissman

The first settlements in India were along the Indus River. We spent some time exploring Mohenjodaro, one of the early cities in the Harappan civilization. They thrived between 2300 BC.E to about 1700 BCE.

Kelsey Cherise Quates's insight:

In my opinion these two civilizations weren't more special than the other one, they each had their unique way of living and populating. The Harappans were more economically built than the Aryans but they both had the same knowledge of how to survive and thrive.

This is an excellent and useful venn diagram drawing to understanding the differences in the Harappans and the Aryans. This is an easy method to compare and contrast these two settlements when preparing for a test.
