    Society- The Indus people slowly progressed from an agricultural society to an early major urban society. Their two major cities, Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro were some of the earliest cities discovered. They were surround by walls and had some of the largest populations of the earliest cities. Harappa was believed to have a population of 35,000 people while Mohenjo-Daro was much larger. They also created a writing system that had 400 signs.
    Culture- What is known about the Indus culture is mostly portrayed through art. The Indus were skilled at making pottery (wheel-working) and the crafting of jewelry. An abundance of natural metals and precious stones in the area aided in making their jewelry famous.

    activities.
    Economics- The Indus had widespread trading contacts throughout the ancient world. They traded goods such as jewelry, timber, metal ore, pottery, fish, and building stone to the Mesopotamians and Egyptians. They served as trading middlemen for the lands beyond their borders.

    Politics- The people followed priest-kings that resided in compound raised above the cities.
    To this day, much of this civilization is shrouded in mystery, especially politics, economics, and the social environment of the civilization.

    During this time trade really started to become an aspect of life. Some areas did not have what other areas had so trading with different cities became important. Also trading within a city became an aspect of everyday life. For example, people would trade ceramic bowls or crops for other goods.
