Discovered in the valley of the Indus River in the early s, the Indus civilization had a population estimated at one million people, in more than settlements, several of which were cities of some 50, inhabitants.

With an area of nearly a million square kilometers, the Indus civilization was more extensive than the other key urban cultures of the time, in Mesopotamia and Egypt. Yet, after almost a century of excavation and research the Indus civilization remains little understood. What language did the Indus people speak? How might we decipher the exquisitely carved Indus inscriptions? What deities did they worship?

Are the roots of contemporary Hinduism to be found in the religion of the Indus civilization as well as in the Vedic religion?
