The first publication of a Harappan seal dates to 1875, in the form of a drawing by Alexander Cunningham. Since then, well over 4000 symbol-bearing objects have been discovered, some as far afield as Mesopotamia. After 1900 BC, use of the symbols ends, together with the final stage of Harappan civilization. Some early scholars, starting with Cunningham in 1877, thought that the script was the archetype of the Brahmi script used by Ashoka Ebb and Flow: Tides and Life on Our Once and Future Planet.

Ancient Greek's political approach shares some similarities... World History H 27 September, 2013 Comparing Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece.. A history of Rome to the battle of Actium;. Copper, silver, and gold are in the same elemental family, and all are relatively non-reactive and could be found in nuggets; they were worked before humans learned to smelt metal.� Copper melts at 1085o C, and a good campfire is still a couple hundred degrees Celsius short of that, so it is thought that copper was first smelted in pottery kilns .� Iron, however, melts at 1538o C, and was not smelted until people made blast furnaces, which oxygenates fires to reach those high temperatures and must use charcoal .� Iron sm elting was probably first accomplished around Anatolia, maybe as early as 2500 BCE, but smelted iron did not begin to become common until a thousand years later, and the Iron Age of Mesopotamia did not begin until around 1300 BCE .� The earliest iron smelting operation remains yet found dated to 930 BCE in Jordan .� Iron is lighter than bronze and can better hold an edge when made into steel.� When the Iron Age appeared, cultures changed.� Felling trees became easier, warfare became deadlier, and plows became more effective.� The sword did not become ubiquitous until the Iron Age, as iron was much more abundant than the tin required for bronze. [673] Mycen aean Greece arose from Minoan influence, and the Greeks quickly set about to reproduce the Minoan �success.�� There was a seductive logic to deforestation and agriculture.� The products of deforestation were the very stuff of civilization, as cities were built from and supplied by plundered wood and crops raised on exposed soils.� Goats and sheep were pastured on the former forest�s soils.� It all made great sense, if only short-term.� As Mycenaean civilization quickly expanded via those dynamics, people only saw it as �progress� and something to be celebrated, not viewed with alarm. [674] As the Peloponnesian plains near shore were deforested, settlements expanded into the hills.� Pottery operations began relocating far from settlements so they could have unchallenged access to fuel for their kilns.� The deforested hillsides of Mycenaean Greece unleashed torrents of mud during the rainy season.� The Mycenaean port of Pylos was surrounded by barren lands, and the pine forests were long gone.� Mycenaean engineers built earthworks that rerouted the local river around Pylos. [675] � Today, the typical Mediterranean �soil� is either limestone bedrock or reddish �soils� that lie atop the limestone and remain after forests and brown topsoils are removed. �The Mediterranean�s �soils,� climate, and biomes are not �natural,� but are the result of millennia of Mediterranean civilization.� In its turn, Mycenaean civilization collapsed, for the same reasons as the others, as its energy practices were anything but sustainable World Civilizations, Volume 1: The Global Experience.
