The Bronze Age Indus Valley Civilization (3300-1300 BC; mature period 2600-1900 BC) was located in what is now Pakistan and northwest India. It was one of the world's earliest urban civilizations, along with its contemporaries, Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. At its peak, the Indus Civilization may have had a population of well over five million. Inhabitants developed new techniques in handicrafts (carnelian products, seal carving) and metallurgy (copper, bronze, lead, and tin). The civilization is noted for its cities built of brick, with roadside drainage systems and multistoried houses.
