3500 year old city found in Egypt ..


This town existed 1500 years before Christ, ie. about 1000 - 1500 years after Mohenjodaro and Harappa, towards its fading days.. White men were still on trees then .. :) 

Egypt and the Indus Vally were the epicentres of human development and civilised living from the growth of humanity. Africa, the cradle of human civilisation and North East Africa from where humans first moved out to different parts of the world about 55,000 years ago should make us feel proud and humbled at the same time at how civilisation started spreading to different parts of the world..

The one question still burning within me is why did the East, particularly the mid-east and Nile, Indus valley lose its prominence over time .... Reaching a pinnacle is a task and remaining there is still another one.. !
