Ancient Indian Sub-Continent
Mohenjo and Daro
are twin cities that are situated near the indus river in India.  These two cities have been virtually unkown in modern times due to the limite excavations there.  The cities are as old as those of Mesopotamia (some scholars say they may be even older).  The level of sophistication in construction and surveying techniques baffle archaeologist today.  The civilization that built these cities was very advanced and must have had a strong central government in order to organize such professional and pre-planned building projects.  The ruins to the left look suprisingly like the ruins of ancient Sumeria and ancient Palestine.  They even look similar to Anasazi ruins found in America.  This historian finds it fascinating that even as these cities reside on different continents, they look identical in nature.  The adaptation to similar surroundings is phenomenal.
