Cities
Central Government and Law Codes
Writing and Record Keeping
Highly Organized Religion
By: Maddie McClure and Molly Broekhuis
Some of the cities that were in the Indus Valley Civilization were Mohenjo Daro, Ganweriwala, Rakigarhi, and Harappa.
Many seals like this were found in their civilization. We can't be sure what they say, but they have lead to some hints dealing with law codes. Much of their government is a mystery to us.

From 400 to as many as 600 Indus writing symbols have been discovered on tablets, ceramic pottery, seals, and on many other materials.
