Several large civilizations developed in the Indus Valley, in what is now Pakistan and India. These civilizations built houses made from baked mud bricks.They also built toilets, wells and even bath houses. High protective walls surrounded the cities.
Outside the cities, the people of the Indus civilizations cultivated cereal crops and dates and also made weapons and other items in bronze.
Stone seals from the Indus civilizations have been found along the Persian Gulf and in the ruins of the city of Ur. The seals show how these ancient peoples developed extensive trade links. These civilizations collapsed in about 3500bc, because of invading tribes.
