Disappearance of advanced Chinese civilization finally solved

Post by staarker »

Scientists have determined what caused the Liangzhu civilization to collapse around 4,300 years ago.
One of the long-lost wonders of the Neolithic Age, the Liangzhu culture first arose around 5,300 years ago in eastern China before going on to become a marvel of its time - a people adept at building sophisticated hydraulic engineering solutions enabling the construction of canals, damns and reservoirs that kept both the people and its crops watered throughout the year.

Liangzhu City, in particular, represented the pinnacle of their civilization's achievements, yet sometime around 4,300 years ago, the Liangzhu civilization collapsed and the city was abandoned.

Exactly what happened to cause this has remained a topic of debate among archaeologists for years, with some sort of flooding event being generally considered the most likely possibility.

Now a new study has all-but confirmed this hypothesis - indicating that the Liangzhu people had faced a period of intense rain and flooding so extreme that it made it impossible for them to remain there. https://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/n ... lly-solved

If you read theories on why certain civilizations vanished, you will find that most of the reasons point in the same direction that is natural calamities. Archaeologists claim that the Maya civilization, as well as the Indus valley civilization both, disappeared due to drought. Even the Aztec civilization is believed to have disappeared due to drought.

I think a lot of such cases can be down to weather and plagues. We did not have advanced methods of dealing with this sort of stuff back then. Even a mild flood in a home can cause mold to grow and it can create a very dangerous area to live in.
