I don't think I have any great knowledge in this area but appreciate
your interest as we seem to share common ideas or questions... I hear
some rather odd desparate things aboput the ancient cities on the
Indus river valley... One is that there were assorted skeletal
that suggested a sudden crissi like a Mount Vesuvius eruption or
sudden explosion caused it and then there were supposed radiation
traces found, but I havenot been able to certify the source and
whether this is really a finding or not... One thing for sure the
layout of the cities was very advanced for the time and suggested
considerable peaceful development for centuries and maybe thousand
years or so...
I will get back to you and the forum on this later... I think any
topic on ancient civilizations and such is fair to discuss here.
