Although there is no incontrovertible proof that this was indeed the case, the distribution of Indus-type artifacts on the Oman peninsula, on Bahrain and in southern Mesopotamia makes it plausible that a series of maritime stages linked the Indus Valley and the Gulf region. The Early Harappan Phase 229 shown in Figures 1 and 2. Their largely cereal diet did not necessarily make people healthier, however, since conditions like caries and protein deficiencies can increase. There were earlier and later cultures, often called Early Harappan and Late Harappan, in the same area of the Harappan Civilization. The advanced architecture of the Harappans is shown by their impressive dockyards, granaries, warehouses, brick platforms, and protective walls. [11] There were earlier and later cultures, often called Early Harappan and Late Harappan, in the same area of the Harappan Civilization. Formerly typical artifacts such as stone weights and female figurines became rare. "[102], Gallego Romero et al. Differences Between Mohenjo-daro and Harappa Discovery Dates Mohenjo-daro was first discovered by D.R. sfn error: multiple targets (2×): CITEREFGiosanCliftMacklinFuller2012 (, sfn error: multiple targets (2×): CITEREFMcIntosh2008 (, sfn error: multiple targets (5×): CITEREFPossehl2002 (, sfn error: multiple targets (3×): CITEREFSingh2008 (, sfn error: multiple targets (3×): CITEREFConinghamYoung2015 (, sfn error: multiple targets (2×): CITEREFMarshall1931 (, sfn error: no target: CITEREFParpola2–15 (, sfn error: no target: CITEREFGangal2014 (. [65] Other international efforts at Mohenjo-daro and Harappa have included the German Aachen Research Project Mohenjo-daro, the Italian Mission to Mohenjo-daro, and the US Harappa Archaeological Research Project (HARP) founded by George F. [47] In 1829, Masson traveled through the princely state of Punjab, gathering useful intelligence for the Company in return for a promise of clemency. Proto-Munda (or Para-Munda) and a "lost phylum" (perhaps related or ancestral to the Nihali language)[243] have been proposed as other candidates for the language of the IVC. J.P. Mallory and Douglas Q. Adams (eds., 1997), sfn error: no target: CITEREFMalloryAdams1997 (. According to Andrew Lawler, "excavations along the Gangetic plain show that cities began to arise there starting about 1200 BCE, just a few centuries after Harappa was deserted and much earlier than once suspected. [11], S. P. Gupta, taking into account new discoveries, periodised the Harappan Civilisation in a chronological framework that includes the Early, Mature and Late Harappan Phase, and starts with the same date as the Regionalisation Era:[26], The consensus on the dating of the Integration Era, or Urban or Mature Harappan Phase, is broadly accepted to be 2600-1900 BC. [70] An alternative approach by Shaffer divides the broader Indus Valley Tradition into four eras, the pre-Harappan "Early Food Producing Era," and the Regionalisation, Integration, and Localisation eras, which correspond roughly with the Early Harappan, Mature Harappan, and Late Harappan phases. [184] Historians such as Heinrich Zimmer and Thomas McEvilley believe that there is a connection between first Jain Tirthankara Rishabhanatha and the Indus Valley civilisation. [16][17], The Harappan language is not directly attested, and its affiliation is uncertain since the Indus script is still undeciphered. [35][r] The more organized sedentary life in turn led to a net increase in the birth rate. [129], These statuettes remain controversial, due to their advanced techniques. Mughal, who "proposed the term Early Harappan to characterize the pre- or protourban phase. Berlin, W. DeGruyter. [1][2] While the Indus Valley Civilisation was divided into Early, Mature and Late Harappan by archaeologists like Mortimer Wheeler,[3] newer periodisations include the Neolithic early farming settlements, and use a Stage-Phase model,[1][4][3] often combining terminology from various systems. [228] According to Possehl, after 1900 BCE the number of sites in today's India increased from 218 to 853. The Harappan Culture categorised as the Early Harappan Culture and Later Harappan … The key difference between the English Reformation and the wider Protestant Reformation in Europe was _____: (a.) [221][222][114][ae] According to Giosan et al. 213–257. Early Sites Research Society (West) Monograph Series, 2, Independence MO 1999. There is a substantial growth in the number of sites between the Early Harappan … Systematic excavations began in Mohenjo-daro in 1924–25 with that of K. N. Dikshit, continuing with those of H. Hargreaves (1925–1926), and Ernest J. H. Mackay (1927–1931). [67], The cities of the Indus Valley Civilisation had "social hierarchies, their writing system, their large planned cities and their long-distance trade [which] mark them to archaeologists as a full-fledged 'civilisation. [238], Shahr-i-Sokhta, located in southeastern Iran shows trade route with Mesopotamia. derived from a late version of the Indus Valley culture? [16][71], Mehrgarh is a Neolithic (7000 BCE to c. 2500 BCE) site in the Balochistan province of Pakistan,[80] which gave new insights on the emergence of the Indus Valley Civilization. In the aftermath of the Indus Civilisation's localisation, regional cultures emerged, to varying degrees showing the influence of the Indus Civilisation. Found at one city is an enormous well-built bath (the "Great Bath"), which may have been a public bath. [143], There was an extensive maritime trade network operating between the Harappan and Mesopotamian civilisations as early as the middle Harappan Phase, with much commerce being handled by "middlemen merchants from Dilmun" (modern Bahrain and Failaka located in the Persian Gulf). Thus, the findings of the above artefacts prove that there were social and economic differences in Harappan culture. The discovery of Harappa, and soon afterwards, Mohenjo-Daro, was the culmination of work beginning in 1861 with the founding of the Archaeological Survey of India in the British Raj. Modeling such as this was unknown in the ancient world up to the Hellenistic age of Greece, and I thought, therefore, that some mistake must surely have been made; that these figures had found their way into levels some 3000 years older than those to which they properly belonged ... Now, in these statuettes, it is just this anatomical truth which is so startling; that makes us wonder whether, in this all-important matter, Greek artistry could possibly have been anticipated by the sculptors of a far-off age on the banks of the Indus. Early Harappan communities turned to large urban centres by 2600 BCE, from where the mature Harappan phase started. "[103] They further note that "[t]he earliest evidence of cattle herding in south Asia comes from the Indus River Valley site of Mehrgarh and is dated to 7,000 YBP. Another town of this stage was found at Kalibangan in India on the Hakra River. Harappan society had no rulers, and everybody enjoyed equal status. ", Sen: "The so-called lost-Saraswati controversy has reignited the debate about the end of the Harappan civilization and the beginning of the Vedic civilization of the Ganges. [6][d], Gradual drying of the region's soil during the 3rd millennium BCE may have been the initial spur for the urbanisation associated with the civilisation, but eventually weaker monsoons and reduced water supply caused the civilisation's demise, and to scatter its population eastward and southward.[7][8]. Mesopotamia and Egypt were longer lived, but coexisted with Indus civilisation during its florescence between 2600 and 1900 B.C. Kenoyer, J. M. 1991a The Indus Valley Tradition of Pakistan and Western India. However, scholars soon started to reject Wheeler's theory, since the skeletons belonged to a period after the city's abandonment and none were found near the citadel. Sir John Marshall, then Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, used the term 'Indus civilization' for the culture discovered at Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, a term doubly apt because of the geographical context implied in the name 'Indus' and the presence of cities implied in the word 'civilization'. Following a tradition in archaeology, the civilisation is sometimes referred to as the Harappan, after its type site, Harappa, the first site to be excavated in the 1920s; this is notably true of usage employed by the Archaeological Survey of India after India's independence in 1947. Explain the strategies for procuring materials by the Harappans for the craft production. (2012), the IVC residents did not develop irrigation capabilities, relying mainly on the seasonal monsoons leading to summer floods. During the Early Harappan period (about 3200–2600 BCE), similarities in pottery, seals, figurines, ornaments, etc. Script is rare and confined to potsherd inscriptions. David McAlpin, "Toward Proto-Elamo-Dravidian". Term and Times. The Cemetery H culture has the earliest evidence for cremation; a practice dominant in Hinduism today. published in Science, computer scientists, comparing the pattern of symbols to various linguistic scripts and non-linguistic systems, including DNA and a computer programming language, found that the Indus script's pattern is closer to that of spoken words, supporting the hypothesis that it codes for an as-yet-unknown language. [2][b] It flourished in the basins of the Indus River, which flows through the length of Pakistan, and along a system of perennial, mostly monsoon-fed, rivers that once coursed in the vicinity of the seasonal Ghaggar-Hakra river in northwest India and eastern Pakistan. [27][11] The Post-Harappan Phase shows renewed regionalisation, culminating in the integration of the Second Urbanisation of the Early Historic Period, starting ca. The Cemetery H culture may be the manifestation of the Late Harappan over a large area in the region of Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, and the Ochre Coloured Pottery culture its successor. [205], During the later half of the 2nd millennium BCE, most of the post-urban Late Harappan settlements were abandoned altogether. Sir John Marshall reacted with surprise when he saw these two statuettes from Harappa:[129], When I first saw them I found it difficult to believe that they were prehistoric; they seemed to completely upset all established ideas about early art, and culture. Question 15. The Regionalisation Era includes the Balakot, Amri, Hakra and Kot Diji Phases. Although the citadels were walled, it is far from clear that these structures were defensive. Several sites have been proposed by Marshall and later scholars as possibly devoted to religious purpose, but at present only the Great Bath at Mohenjo-daro is widely thought to have been so used, as a place for ritual purification. [171] Farmer et al. In 1826, Charles Mason made the first discovery of the Harappan city. Kumar: "The analysis of two Y chromosome variants, Hgr9 and Hgr3 provides interesting data (Quintan-Murci et al., 2001). [56] Later in 1923, Vats, also in correspondence with Marshall, noted the same more specifically about the seals and the script found at both sites. But given the originality of Mehrgarh, Jarrige concludes that Mehrgarh has an earlier local background," and is not a "'backwater' of the Neolithic culture of the Near East. [3], A critical feature of Shaffer's developmental framework was replacing the traditional Mesolithic/Neolithic, 'Chalcolithic'/Early Harappan, Mature Harappan and Late Harappan terminology with Eras which were intended to reflect the longer-term changes or processes which provided the platform for eventual complexity and urbanisation [...] Notably, Shaffer's categorisation also allowed scholars to frame sites such as Mehrgarh, accepted by all as partly ancestral to the Indus cities within a distinctly pervasive Indus tradition rather than lying outside a Pre-Urban or incipient urban phase. "[83][af], According to Jean-Francois Jarrige, farming had an independent origin at Mehrgarh, despite the similarities which he notes between Neolithic sites from eastern Mesopotamia and the western Indus valley, which are evidence of a "cultural continuum" between those sites. Some of these crafts are still practised in the subcontinent today. [109][110], The final stages of the Early Harappan period are characterised by the building of large walled settlements, the expansion of trade networks, and the increasing integration of regional communities into a "relatively uniform" material culture in terms of pottery styles, ornaments, and stamp seals with Indus script, leading into the transition to the Mature Harappan phase. This civilisation is dated between C. 2600 and 1900 B.C.E. The IVC may have been the first civilisation to use wheeled transport. These included D. R. Bhandarkar (1911), R. D. Banerji (1919, 1922–1923), and M.S. Some of the seals were used to stamp clay on trade goods. Doris Srinivasan has argued that the figure does not have three faces, or yogic posture, and that in Vedic literature Rudra was not a protector of wild animals. Shaffer’s own definition (quoted earlier) observes the similarities of the two eras, with some differentiation in the form of contact between groups.[11]. [138], During 4300–3200 BCE of the chalcolithic period (copper age), the Indus Valley Civilisation area shows ceramic similarities with southern Turkmenistan and northern Iran which suggest considerable mobility and trade. [60], A sophisticated and technologically advanced urban culture is evident in the Indus Valley Civilisation, making them the first urban centre in the region. They also concluded that this contradicted the idea of a Harappan-time mighty "Sarasvati" river. However, due to the sparsity of evidence, which is open to varying interpretations, and the fact that the Indus script remains undeciphered, the conclusions are partly speculative and largely based on a retrospective view from a much later Hindu perspective. "[206] However, there is greater continuity and overlap between Late Harappan and subsequent cultural phases at sites in Punjab, Haryana, and western Uttar Pradesh, primarily small rural settlements. It refers to the fragmentation of the culture of the Integration Era. [7] Early Indus civilization, notably the Aryan had no written language for some time, but used a sacred language known as Sanskrit, and a secular dialect known as Prakit. The inhabitants of the Indus Valley civilisation migrated from the river valleys of Indus and Ghaggar-Hakra, towards the Himalayan foothills of Ganga-Yamuna basin.[233]. (2009) principally reflects gene flow from Iran and the Middle East. They conclude that the method used by Rao et al. the Mauryan Empire, ca. "[11], Durée longue: Harappan Civilisation and Early Historic Period, harvnb error: no target: CITEREFRao2005 (. and western neighbors proceeded up the Persian Gulf rather than overland. [182][183] Writing in 2002, Gregory L. Possehl concluded that while it would be appropriate to recognise the figure as a deity, its association with the water buffalo, and its posture as one of ritual discipline, regarding it as a proto-Shiva would be going too far. After the partition of India in 1947, when most excavated sites of the Indus Valley civilisation lay in territory awarded to Pakistan, the Archaeological Survey of India, its area of authority reduced, carried out large numbers of surveys and excavations along the Ghaggar-Hakra system in India. Microsatellite variation of Hgr9 among Iranians, Pakistanis and Indians indicate an expansion of populations to around 9000 YBP in Iran and then to 6,000 YBP in India. Chattophadhyaya, vol I Part 1) (New Delhi:Centre for Studies in Civilizations, 1999). (2015) note that "new, possibly West Asian, body types are reported from the graves of Mehrgarh beginning in the Togau phase (3800 BCE). [126], Many crafts including, "shell working, ceramics, and agate and glazed steatite bead making" were practised and the pieces were used in the making of necklaces, bangles, and other ornaments from all phases of Harappan culture. ", Wright: "Unable to state the age of the civilization, he went on to observe that the Indus (which he (, Habib: "Sir John Marshall, then Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, used the term 'Indus civilization' for the culture discovered at Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, a term doubly apt because of the geographical context implied in the name 'Indus' and the presence of cities implied in the word 'civilization'. "[85], Lukacs and Hemphill suggest an initial local development of Mehrgarh, with a continuity in cultural development but a change in population. Keay, John, India, a History. [177][178], One Indus Valley seal shows a seated figure with a horned headdress, possibly tricephalic and possibly ithyphallic, surrounded by animals. Masson, who had versed himself in the classics, especially in the military campaigns of Alexander the Great, chose for his wanderings some of the same towns that had featured in Alexander's campaigns, and whose archaeological sites had been noted by the campaign's chroniclers. The Near East is separated from the Indus Valley by the arid plateaus, ridges and deserts of Iran and Afghanistan, where rainfall agriculture is possible only in the foothills and cul-de-sac valleys. This wave has been postulated to have brought the Dravidian languages into India (Renfrew 1987). Potential sources for this river include the Yamuna River, the Sutlej River, or both rivers. However, the similarity of the settlements suggests a high level of social control and leadership. Houses opened only to inner courtyards and smaller lanes. [111], There is also a Harappan site called Rojdi in Rajkot district of Saurashtra. Although some houses were larger than others, Indus Civilisation cities were remarkable for their apparent, if relative, egalitarianism. [32][n], The Indus civilization was roughly contemporary with the other riverine civilisations of the ancient world: Egypt along the Nile, Mesopotamia in the lands watered by the Euphrates and the Tigris, and China in the drainage basin of the Yellow River and the Yangtze. [9][e] The discovery of Harappa and soon afterwards Mohenjo-daro was the culmination of work beginning in 1861 with the founding of the Archaeological Survey of India during the British Raj. "[197], During the period of approximately 1900 to 1700 BCE, multiple regional cultures emerged within the area of the Indus civilisation. [13] The Early Harappan phase belongs to this Era. [15][2], Rao, who excavated Bhirrana, claims to have found pre-Harappan Hakra Ware in its oldest layers, dated at the 8th-7th millennium BCE. [107] Kot Diji represents the phase leading up to Mature Harappan, with the citadel representing centralised authority and an increasingly urban quality of life. (2016) confirms that Indus populations were the earliest people to use complex multi-cropping strategies across both seasons, growing foods during summer (rice, millets and beans) and winter (wheat, barley and pulses), which required different watering regimes. The youngest group of paintings have been in the news for a possible connection to the Indus Valley Civilisation. Coningham and Young: "Mehrgarh remains one of the key sites in South Asia because it has provided the earliest known undisputed evidence for farming and pastoral communities in the region, and its plant and animal material provide clear evidence for the ongoing manipulation, and domestication, of certain species. David McAlpin: "Linguistic prehistory: the Dravidian situation", in Madhav M. Deshpande and Peter Edwin Hook: David McAlpin, "Proto-Elamo-Dravidian: The Evidence and its Implications", Mukherjee (2001): "More recently, about 15,000–10,000 years before present (ybp), when agriculture developed in the Fertile Crescent region that extends from Israel through northern Syria to western Iran, there was another eastward wave of human migration (Cavalli-Sforza et al., 1994; Renfrew 1987), a part of which also appears to have entered India. [232], As of 2016[update], archaeological data suggests that the material culture classified as Late Harappan may have persisted until at least c. 1000–900 BCE and was partially contemporaneous with the Painted Grey Ware culture. "[6] According to Coningham and Young, this approach is "limited" and "restricted,"[6] putting too much emphasis on the mature phase. I n the late 1820s, a British explorer in India named Charles Masson stumbled across some mysterious ruins and brick mounds, the first evidence of the lost city of Harappa. But, if we combine pre-Harappan layers into Early Harappan (as above), we lose the distinction between the developing and the developed state of the civilization. Kenoyer (2006), "Cultures and Societies of the Indus Tradition. However, as in other cultures, actual weights were not uniform throughout the area. In Journal of World Prehistory 5(4): 331–385. 7000-5500 BCE. [127] Some make-up and toiletry items (a special kind of combs (kakai), the use of collyrium and a special three-in-one toiletry gadget) that were found in Harappan contexts still have similar counterparts in modern India. [10] There were however earlier and later cultures often called Early Harappan and Late Harappan in the same area; for this reason, the Harappan civilisation is sometimes called the Mature Harappan to distinguish it from these other cultures. In Chronologies in Old World Archaeology (3rd Edition), edited by R. Ehrich, pp. A considerable number were carted away as track ballast for the railway lines being laid in the Punjab. The mature (Harappan) phase of the IVC is contemporary to the Early and Middle Bronze Age in the Ancient Near East, in particular the Old Elamite period, Early Dynastic, the Akkadian Empire to Ur III Mesopotamia, Prepalatial Minoan Crete and Old Kingdom to First Intermediate Period Egypt. At the height of the Indus valley civilization the subcontinent may have contained 4-6 million people. [153] Bates et al. Studies of tooth enamel from individuals buried at Harappa suggest that some residents had migrated to the city from beyond the Indus Valley. "[101][ac] Mascarenhas et al. With the movement to settled agriculture, and the emergence of villages, towns and cities, there was probably a modest rise in the average death rate and a slightly greater rise in the birth rate. while large proportion of data remains ambiguous, being building of reliable local isotopic references for fats and oils still unavailable and lower lipid levels in preserved IVC vessels, available evidence indicates (food) vessel's usage had been multi-functional, and across rural and urban settlements usage was similar; and cooking in Indus vessels constituted dairy products, ruminant carcass meat, and either non-ruminant adipose fats, plants, or mixtures of these products.[155]. [64] After the partition, Mortimer Wheeler, the Director of ASI from 1944, oversaw the establishment of archaeological institutions in Pakistan, later joining a UNESCO effort tasked to conserve the site at Mohenjo-daro. [66] Following a chance flash flood which exposed a portion of an archaeological site at the foot of the Bolan Pass in Balochistan, excavations were carried out in Mehrgarh by French archaeologist Jean-François Jarrige and his team. Two other realistic statuettes have been found in Harappa in proper stratified excavations, which display near-Classical treatment of the human shape: the statuette of a dancer who seems to be male, and a red jasper male torso, both now in the Delhi National Museum. ", Nevertheless, Kivisild et al. However, the lack of large-scale incision on the interfluve demonstrates that large, glacier-fed rivers did not flow across the Ghaggar-Hakra region during the Holocene. Finally, the longevity of the site, and its articulation with the neighbouring site of Nausharo (c. 2800–2000 BCE), provides a very clear continuity from South Asia's first farming villages to the emergence of its first cities (Jarrige, 1984). This migration originated in what was historically termed Elam in south-west Iran to the Indus valley, and may have been associated with the spread of Dravidian languages from south-west Iran (Quintan-Murci et al., 2001). 1998 Ancient Cities of the Indus Valley Civilization. ", Dyson: "In the millennia which followed, farming developed and spread slowly into the Indus valley and adjacent areas. Overall, anthropologist Gregory Possehl tends to consider that these statuettes probably form the pinnacle of Indus art during the Mature Harappan period.[130]. By this time, villagers had domesticated numerous crops, including peas, sesame seeds, dates, and cotton, as well as animals, including the water buffalo. According to Coningham & Young, this division was introduced in colonial times, with scholars who claimed that "a distinct cultural, linguistic and social transformation lay between the Indus Civilisation and the Early Historic," and perpetuated by "a number of post-Independence South Asian scholars. [128], A handful of realistic statuettes have been found at IVC sites, of which much the most famous is the lost-wax casting bronze statuette of a slender-limbed Dancing Girl adorned with bangles, found in Mohenjo-daro. Lichtenstein,[115] the Mature Harappan Civilisation was "a fusion of the Bagor, Hakra, and Kot Diji traditions or 'ethnic groups' in the Ghaggar-Hakra valley on the borders of India and Pakistan". A human deity with the horns, hooves and tail of a bull also appears in the seals, in particular in a fighting scene with a horned tiger-like beast. [22][k], Aryan indigenist writers like David Frawley use the terms "Sarasvati culture", the "Sarasvati Civilisation", the "Indus-Sarasvati Civilisation" or the "Sindhu-Saraswati Civilisation", because they consider the Ghaggar-Hakra river to be the same as the Sarasvati,[23][24][25] a river mentioned several times in the Rig Veda, a collection of ancient Sanskrit hymns composed in the second millennium BCE. Most city dwellers appear to have been traders or artisans, who lived with others pursuing the same occupation in well-defined neighbourhoods. Archaeologists have discovered a massive, dredged canal and what they regard as a docking facility at the coastal city of Lothal in western India (Gujarat state). The most commonly used nomenclature[5][6] classifies the Indus Valley Civilisation into Early, Mature and Late Harappan Phase. New York: Grove Press, 2000. b. In the formerly great city of Harappa, burials have been found that correspond to a regional culture called the Cemetery H culture. Photos of many of the thousands of extant inscriptions are published in the Corpus of Indus Seals and Inscriptions (1987, 1991, 2010), edited by Asko Parpola and his colleagues. Several periodisations are employed for the periodisation of the Indus Valley Civilisation. This widespread fluvial redistribution of sediment suggests that reliable monsoon rains were able to sustain perennial rivers earlier during the Holocene and explains why Harappan settlements flourished along the entire Ghaggar-Hakra system without access to a glacier-fed river. Nevertheless, Jarrige concludes that Mehrgarh has an earlier local background," and is not a "'backwater' of the Neolithic culture of the Near East. [17][69] The most commonly used classifies the Indus Valley Civilisation into Early, Mature and Late Harappan Phase. (All India 2013) Answer: In Harappan Civilisation, a variety of materials was used for craft production. [116], Various sculptures, seals, bronze vessels pottery, gold jewellery, and anatomically detailed figurines in terracotta, bronze, and steatite have been found at excavation sites. The Harappans and Sumerians are distinctly different politically. Subsequently, the Indo-European (Aryan) language family was introduced into India about 4,000 ybp. At the same time, the Ochre Coloured Pottery culture expanded from Rajasthan into the Gangetic Plain. [23] The largest number of sites are in Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir states in India,[23] and Sindh, Punjab, and Balochistan provinces in Pakistan. Excavation of Harappan sites has been ongoing since 1920, with important breakthroughs occurring as recently as 1999. Pande (ed. Beginnings of Village Farming Communities and Pastoral camps, Developed Village Farming Communities and Pastoral camps, Transition from Early Harappan to Mature Harappan, Early Iron Age of Northern India and Pakistan, S.P. (2004) found that the isotopes of sediments carried by the Ghaggar-Hakra system over the last 20 thousand years do not come from the glaciated Higher Himalaya but have a sub-Himalayan source, and concluded that the river system was rain-fed. Early Food Producing Era: ca. The Harappan site showing evidence of two cultural phases, Harappan and pre-Harappan, is: A) Kalibangan: B) Mohenjodaro: C) Chanhu-daro: D) Banwali: Correct Answer: ... What was the main difference between the Indus Valley civilization and Vedic civilization? There is no conclusive evidence of palaces or temples – or of kings, armies, or priests. 5,000 years BCE. [1][11], Kenoyer, and Coningham & Young, provide an overview of developmental phases of India in which the Indus Valley Civilisation and the Early Historic Period are combined.
