Significant pre-Islamic anthropological sites are examined on the Maldive Islands (low atols) in the Indian Ocean, south of India and Southwest of Ceylon. A passage through the southernmost of these islands follows the equator. It appears that an ancient trading sea route went between these islands. Ancient artifacts of a more orental nature were found. It is posited that there were warehouses on the islands. Trade may have been the orient and the ancient Mohenjo-daro civilization and other civilizations of the Indus Valley.
