The Indus Valley Civilisation is famous for its unique position in relation to other early states due to its apparent lack of elites. During the Late Harappan period the agricultural economies of the region have been observed continuing to grow despite the decline of urbanism, showing increases in settlement density even as cities themselves shrank. Dr Green discusses this phenomenon in relation to how it shows sustainability and sustainable development in the ancient world and what it can teach us about egalitarianism and inequality in the modern day.
