About the Book

The Indus culture was the first human culture on the earth and, that is why, what has been presented to us through inscriptions is just its infancy. The inscriptions say that they had moved from hunting to farming. They founded villages and constructed houses. The useful animals had begun to be domesticated and the heaths were cleared off from harmful creatures for human habitation,.

The book highlights the evolution of human civilization. Readers and scholars may find the book useful.
