Lottiefultz's insight:

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.

This article brings up a new theory as to why the ancient Harappan Civilization.  The theory is that because their agriculture relied solely on the seasonal monsoon, the climate change that was incredibly detrimental to the monsoon thus initiated the collapse.  Because India and the Sahara share the same latitude without the seasonal monsoon India would be the equivalent of the Sahara.

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

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.
