    B. The ancient people of the Indus Valley purposely obscured evidence of their existence.

    C. Archaeologists and historians have been unable to decipher the Indus Valley writing.

  2. The region forming modern Pakistan was at the heart of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. But originally it was part of India in Bronze Age civilization (3300–1300 BCE; mature period 2600–1900 BCE). But many articles while describing Pakistan says that Pakistan has a rich history dating back to the ancient times.
    All their history actually starts from 1947, not 3000 BC. Indus valley civilization was inhabitated by present Indians not Pakistanis.

    2) The Indus River changed course
    3) The flooding of the Indus river was unpredictable.
