The Indus Civilisation was an early civilisation based around the Indus valley in southwest Asia. It is known to be one of the earliest sites of organised settlements of mainly farmers, working together to form proto-cities and a relatively stable civilisation. It rose at roughly the same time as the Mesopotamian culture to the west, and soon began to directly compete for trade in the area with Ur.
