Cynia Sapp's curator insight, March 4, 2014 1:56 PM

One prediction is that the world's first  civilizations  have collapsed because of climate change. In this case it is about India. According to the Banaras Hindu University, there had been droughts in the Indus River that lasted for two hundred years. That is two centuries worth of droughts! It is ironic how the once fertile lands of the Indus River began to experience droughts. To my knowledge, climate change is always one possibility of a disappearance of a civilization.

A brief clip from a six part series on why Egypt's Old Kingdom fell.

vanessa ortiz's curator insight, April 18, 2014 9:38 PM

This video suggests that the fall of the Egypt kingdom fell due to the climate change.  The lower kingdom (north Egypt) was not always a deadly desert.  North Egypt was once full of savannas and small bodies of water.  However, as time went on it became the desert that we see today.  Which is why the kingdom of Egypt collapsed because nobody could live there anymore.  This theory of why the Egyptian kingdom collapsed is intriguing to me because it is scientifically proven that the world's climates and geography have changed over time and continue to do so.  Therefore, this theory could be correct.

Th collapse of the old kingdom was related to the drought that took place on the Nile river. Although there were other contributing factors such as inter power struggle and a crippling economy the Nile played a big part.

Esmeralda Garcia's insight:

The first settlements in India were located along the Indus River.  Mohenjodaro was one of the early cities in the Harappan civilization.  They flourished between 2300 BC.E to about 1700 BCE.  The next civilization were the Aryans.

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.

Andrea Arminguay's curator insight, February 7, 2014 10:09 PM

really helpful! it helps compare and contrast the Harrappans vs. the Aryans. this shows how this two cultures were different and what things they had in common.

Kelsey Cherise Quates's curator insight, April 16, 2014 11:29 PM

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.
