Persepolis vs. Mohenjo-daro

Persepolis

This ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire dates back to the sixth century BC and was founded by Darius the Great. The site is best known for its splendid palace complex which was looted in 330 BC by Alexander the Great. Will ArchaeoMadness give this ancient city a chance to shine once more?

Mohenjo-daro

This massive mud-brick city in the Indus River Valley is the earliest example of urbanization in South Asia. The city flourished for 800 years but today is threatened by the Indus River's rising water table. Will modern urbanites help this ancient city gain new accolades through an ArchaeoMadness victory?
