Settlements of the Indus River
This series examines when, how, and why humans have settled along the world's major rivers. The impact of human activity, both current and historical, is examined through specific case studies. Each featured settlement is discussed from its development to the present day, including any natural or human threats and attempts at sustainable development. Brief timelines trace specific settlements, while a compilation timeline in the end matter summarizes aggregate changes along the river.
