Archeology has always intrigued me. About 4,500 years ago in present day Pakistan, the Harappan civilization (3,000–1,500 BCE) built what’s thought to be a remarkably advanced, extensive city built on a grid system, of some 30,000 people, totally unheard of before the Roman Empire 2,500 years later.
In this ancient planned city, homes had their own wells, drains and toilets, complete with an underground sewer system comprising of earthenware pipes, a first it seems on our planet. They also had developed an advanced method of casting intricate Bronze statues.
