Indus Valley

 

 

 

Generally, academics place the Indus Valley civilization, i. e., the cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, ca. 3,500 - 3,300 to 1,500 - 1,300 BC.

 

During and after the demise of this civilization the Indus River Valley was invaded by the Indo-European Aryans from the north and northwest (present-day Iran and Central Asia).

 

Civilization then developed in the west of India along the Ganges River.
