Technology Of Indus Civilization Final Presentation

  1. 1. Technology of Indus Civilization…
  2. 2. Technology <ul><li>Technology is a broad concept that deals with a species’ usage and knowledge of tools and crafts, and how it affects a species' ability to control and adapt to its environment. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What are advanced technology? <ul><li>Advanced Technology in their daily life simply means: </li></ul>1.The branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science. 2.The terminology of an art, science, etc.; technical nomenclature. 4.A technological process, invention, method, or the like. 3.The sum of the ways in which social groups provide themselves with the material objects of their civilization.
  4. 4. <ul><li>-The Indus seal is one example. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>When was it discovered? </li></ul><ul><li>It was found between 1927 and 1931. </li></ul><ul><li>Where was it 1 st found? </li></ul><ul><li>It was found at Mohenjo-Daro during the initial excavations. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Why was it invented? </li></ul><ul><li>Its was invented because it was used for both internal and external trade. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Carnelian beads <ul><li>The Indus Valley people are well-known for their bead-making skills. Different materials were used to make beads, such as carnelian, bone and ivory. Beads of many different shapes and sizes have been found at all the major Indus Valley sites. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Weight <ul><li>This is a chert weight. Weights like this were used throughout the Indus Valley. Archaeologists believe that they were used in trade and were part of a standardized system. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Weights <ul><li>This is a group of chert weights. Weights like this were used throughout the Indus Valley. Archaeologists believe that they were used in trade or taxation. The weights found in the Indus Valley seem to be part of a standardized system. </li></ul><ul><li>At that time the people can cut this square very accurate . </li></ul>
  10. 10. Shell inlay <ul><li>This is a small piece of inlay made out of shell. Special objects and jewellery were often decorated with small pieces of inlay. Shell was used to make special jewellery, inlay and small objects. </li></ul><ul><li>At that time they can do such a tiny thing so fine , means they had very good tools to do that. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Pot with perforated sides <ul><li>Some pots were found with holes punched in the sides. Archaeologists believe that pots like this may have been used to create fermented drinks like beer. </li></ul><ul><li>At that time , the people can mad some holes on the pot means they had already hold the technology knowledge. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Copper bangle <ul><li>This is part of a bangle made of copper. Bangles of all shapes, sizes and decoration have been found at Indus Valley sites. So many of these bracelets have been found that it seems likely they were quite common. Several different materials were used to make bangles such as clay, shell, metal and faience. </li></ul><ul><li>They could calculate it so accurate that it can stay on hand so nice , it tells that they had know the knowledge of technology so advanced at that time. </li></ul>
  13. 13. The Lower Town <ul><li>The Lower Town is organised on a grid system with four avenues running from north to south and four running from east to west. The avenues are several metres wide and have drains running down the middle or side of the road </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>The avenues divide the Lower Town into many blocks. Alleyways and lanes further divided these blocks. Judging by the size of the buildings found in the Lower Town, archaeologists believe that it was probably where most of the people in the city lived and worked. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Most of the homes are made of baked bricks in a standard size of 28 x 14 x 7 centimetres. The houses generally have several rooms built around a courtyard. The doorways to the outside usually open onto side alleys rather than onto the avenues. Archaeological evidence, such as the remains of stairways, seems to suggest that many of the buildings had two storeys. Roofs were probably made of wooden beams covered with reeds and packed clay. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Many homes had specific rooms for bathing. These rooms had floors made from baked bricks or tiles and drains which emptied into the drains in the street outside. People had access to clean water either from wells within their homes or from public wells in the streets. Over 700 public and private wells have been found at Mohenjo-Daro. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>The old city can be so nice like this </li></ul><ul><li>We cannot imagine hoe can they do it </li></ul><ul><li>How good technology they have. </li></ul><ul><li>This shows that their technology is up to the standard of our technology. </li></ul><ul><li>They have the knowledge of technology at that period of time already. </li></ul>
