Synopsis

Indus Valley by Anita Ganeri, Franklin Watts

Each book in Great Civilisations approaches its subject through a scene-setting spread Who/where were the...then introduces the achievements of the chosen civilisation through 12 structures or objects, each of which illustrates a key aspect or theme. Writing, architecture, industry, warfare, transport and learning are all covered in the same simple, colourful and engaging way. Fact boxes and panels present incidental information and point the reader to the importance of parallel developments in other parts of the world. Indus Valley offers a look at one of the most important ancient civilisations. Through structures as complex and magnificent as the Great Bath at Mohenjo Daro or as simple as a steatite seal or a pot, readers gain a picture of who was whom in the ancient Indus Valley and how the civilisation in which they lived really worked.
