Indus Valley Civilization, spread in the north western side of the nation during the period of c. 3300 BC to 1300 BC being India's first civilization, is marked as the main beginning of the ancient history of India. [1] The IVC ( Indus Valley Civilization) was also known as the civilization of Bronze Age which was of 3300 to 1300 BC and mature period of the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was 2600 to1900 BCE. It was mainly situated in northwest part of South Asia which was extended from what today is the northeast part of the two countries that is Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest part of the India. [1] It marked the advent of the Bronze Age in India and is expected to have evolved and flourished between 3300 and 1300 BC. As the name suggests, the Indus Valley Civilization mainly flourished around the basin of River Indus and extended till the Ghagger-Hakra River Valley and the Ganga-Yamuna Doab, covering some northwestern parts of India and most portions of Pakistan. [1] Generally, academics place the Indus Valley civilisation, i. e., the cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, ca. 3,500 - 3,300 to 1,500 - 1,300 BC. Late Harappan Phase (1700 BC to 1300 BC) The Late Harappan Phase began around 1700 BC and came to an end around 1300 BC. However, one can find many elements of the Indus Valley Civilization in later cultures. [1] If the migration happened after the Indus valley civilization as mentioned in point 3, the Rigveda can not be dated back before 1300 BC. The Bronze Age began in the Indian sub-continent around 3300 BC with the early age of Indus valley civilization. [1] Indus valley Civilization (Dates of the civilization appear to be about 3300 BC to 1300 BC, though the southern sites may have lasted la. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization ( map ) was a vast Bronze Age civilization lasting from 3300 to 1300 BC, with its mature period from 2600 to 1900 BC. It extended from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India. [1] Indus Valley Civilization, 3300 B.C. - 1700 B.C. 27.03.2015 0 The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilisation (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE, pre- Harappan cultures starting c.7500 BCE) in northwest Indian subcontinent (including present day Pakistan, northwest India) and also in some regions in northeast Afghanistan. [1]

Indus Valley Civilization is one of the oldest civilization that flourished along the Indus river around 3300 - 1300 BC. Harappa and Mohenjo daro are the notable cities. [1] Indus valley civilization itself encompassed the entire Bronze age (3300 1300 BC). [1]

In Mehrgarh, Pakistan, archeologists made the discovery that the people of Indus Valley Civilization, even from the early Harappan periods (c. 3300 BC ), had knowledge of medicine and dentistry. [1] Indus Valley Civilization, 3300 B.C. - 1700 B.C. 27.03.2015 0 The culture spread throughout southern Jiangsu and northern Zhejiang from around 5000 BC to 3300 BC. The later part of the period is known as the Songze culture The Indus Valley Civilisation starts around 3300 BC with what is referred to as the Early Harappan Phase (3300 to 2600 BC). [1] The culture spread throughout southern Jiangsu and northern Zhejiang from around 5000 BC to 3300 BC. The later part of the period is known as the Songze culture The Bronze Age on the Indian subcontinent began around 3300 BC with the beginning of the Indus Valley civilization. [1] In other words there is no racial evidence of any such Indo-Aryan invasion of India but only of a continuity of the same group of people who traditionally considered themselves to be Aryans" (The Myth of the Aryan Invasion of India, by David Fawley). 3300 BC to 1700 BC was characterized by the Indus Valley civilization. 3300 BC - Origin of the Indus Valley civilization beginning with the Ravi phase. [1] If the migration happened after the Indus valley civilization as mentioned in point 3, the Rigveda can not be dated back before 1300 BC. A popular perception was deliberately created by Indian Hindus, particularly after the recent revival of Indian Hindu extremism in India that, because the Indus Valley Civilization fizzled out by 1300 BC, the people also vanished and the current people of Indus valley have no linkages with those who lived earlier. [1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. Mature Harappan Phase lasted from 2600BC to 1700 BC. Subsequently came the third phase, the late Harappan phase from 1700 BC to 1300 BC. 2800 BC - Kot Diji phase of the Indus Valley Civilization begins. [1] Late Harappan Phase (1700 BC to 1300 BC) The Late Harappan Phase began around 1700 BC and came to an end around 1300 BC. However, one can find many elements of the Indus Valley Civilization in later cultures. [1] Mature Harappan Phase lasted from 2600BC to 1700 BC. Subsequently came the third phase, the late Harappan phase from 1700 BC to 1300 BC. 2800 BC - Kot Diji phase of the Indus Valley Civilization begins. [1]

The team concluded that these swastikas are "the oldest ever discovered", they apparently pre-date the Harappan civilization who lived in the Indus Valley between about 3,300 and 1,300 BC. The Indus Valley civilization flourished in the Indian Subcontinent between 3300 BC to 1300 BC and at its peak the civilization covered most of the north-western part of the subcontinent. [1] The 33rd century BC is a century which lasted from the year 3300 BC to 3201 BC. The Bronze Age on the Indian subcontinent began around 3300 BC with the beginning of the Indus Valley civilization. [1]

The Indus Valley civilization (also called the Harappan era) was one of the earliest known cultures of the Old World, dating from approximately 3,300 to 1,900 BCE, and spanning widely across Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, covering 1.25 million km2 at its height. [1] Indus Valley Civilization, India, Pakistan & Afghanistan (3,300 to 1,300 B.C.) [1]

The Indus Valley Civilization flourished between 3300 to 1300 BC. It was one of the earliest civilizations along with those in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt and also the largest ancient civilization in the world, spread over an area of 1,260,000 km 2.

Generally, academics place the Indus Valley civilisation, i. e., the cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, ca. 3,500 - 3,300 to 1,500 - 1,300 BC. If you say 3300 BCE to 2600 BCE then you are referring to early Indus valley civilisation period. [1] Generally, academics place the Indus Valley civilisation, i. e., the cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, ca. 3,500 - 3,300 to 1,500 - 1,300 BC. There is also evidence of three major earthquakes in the Indus Valley: 2900 BC, 2600 BC, and 1800 BC. The 2600 BC quake brought down the early Harappan phase at Kalibangan, but the city was rebuilt into the mature Harappan phase only to be abandoned around 2100-2000 BC when the Sarasvati R iver dried up. [1] Generally, academics place the Indus Valley civilisation, i. e., the cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, ca. 3,500 - 3,300 to 1,500 - 1,300 BC. If the Indo-Aryan speakers invaded the Indus Valley between 1750 BC and 1500 BC, what language were the earlier owners of the Valley speaking? Since we haven’t decoded the Harappan language / Indus Script, we can’t know. [1]

From the prehistoric era art, one moves through to the Bronze age of the Indian subcontinent from about 3300 BC to about 1300 BC, within which there are classifications like Early Harappan age, Mature Harappan age, Indus Valley Civilisation, and the Late Harappan age. [1] It's quite amazing to think how IV civilization was active for 2000 yrs(3300 bc to 1300 bc) n how we are more close to Ashoka's rule(in terms of years) in comparison to early Indus Valley civ. [1] Indus Valley Civilization, 3300 B.C. - 1700 B.C. 27.03.2015 0 [2]

This Valley civilization existed from approximately 3300 BC to about 1300 BC. Both Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa have been extensively explored and both cities provide examples of a culture technologically advanced beyond what one would expect. [1] The first known sculpture in the Indian subcontinent is from the Indus Valley civilization (3300-1700 BC), found in sites at Mohenjo-daro and Harappa in modern-day Pakistan. [1] In 1999 they were found in a cemetery west of Cheop's pyramid. (SFC, 5/27/99, p.A18) 2.6k BC - 2.5k BC British archeologists reported in 2007 that houses found at Durrington Walls near Stonehenge, the world's largest known henge (an enclosure with a bank on the outside and a ditch inside), were radiocarbon dated to this time. (AFP, 1/30/07) 2.6k BC - 1.9k BC The Indus Valley Civilization flourished with Harappa as one of its great cities. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization was identified between 3300-1300 BC. The decline of Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) started in 1900 BC and gradually the references to Melluha (People of Indus Valley Civilization) in Mesopotamian writings diminished no IVC seals are found in Mesopotamia with which the Melluha conducted a bustling trade.Even after the fading out of IVC, it’s people continued live in places like Harappa and Mohenjodaro long after that. [1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. Cities like Lothal and Kalibangan have yielded fire altars and other Indus Valley sites have yielded horse bones as old as 2450 BC. This is genetically proven so do not give me your wild donkey or onager theories which are not founded. [1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. Between 1900-1300 BC the civilization declined and there were no more references to Meluhha (Mesopotamian name for Indus Valley Civilization landmass) in Mesopotamian finds. [1] Art of Indus valley Civilization by-Dhirendranath Thakur The Indus Valley Civilization was a Bronze Age civilization (33001300 B.C. The Indus Valley Civilisation ( IVC ) was a Bronze Age civilisation (3300-1300 BC; mature period 2600-1900 BC) mainly in the northwestern regions of South Asia, extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilization (3300-1300 BC ; mature period 2600-1900 BC) that was located in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent, consisting of what is now mainly modern-day Pakistan and northwest India. [1] The weapons were found to be made of iron and steel and scientific analysis has linked them to the Indus Valley civilization, a Bronze Age civilization (3300-1300 BC) which extended from what is today northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India. [1] Urban civilization first appeared in ancent India with the Indus Valley civilization in the early third millennium BC, in what is today Pakistan and north-west india. [1] It was eclipsed by Crete and Mycenaean Greece. (AP, 12/31/06) 3.2k BC - 1.6k BC The Indus Valley civilization grew up along the banks of the Indus River in what later became Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan. [1] Indus Valley civilization is now considered as a continuation of the neolithic Mehrgarh culture which flourished between 7000BC to 5000BC. The overall period assigned to Indus Valley Civilization is 3300-1300 BC, with its mature period between 2600 to 1900 BC. In around 500 BC, the Indus Valley region was invaded by the Persian ruler Darius I making the far north-west of India a satrapy of the Achaemenid Empire. [1] The late Harappan phase pertains to the period starting around 1900-1800 BC when the Indus Valley Civilization, popularly known as the Harappan Culture, began to decline. [1] The Indus script (also known as The Harappan script) is a corpus of symbols produced by the Indus Valley Civilization during the Kot Diji and Mature Harappan periods between 3500 and 1900 BC. Most inscriptions are extremely short. [1] Evolution of the Indus Valley civilization  6500-5000 BC: Early food producing era.  5000-2600 BC: Regionalization era. (3300-2600 BC: Early Harappan).  2600-1900 BC: Intregation era. (mature Harappan)  1900-1300BC: Localisation era. (Late Harappan)  1300-300BC: Post Indus tradition. [1] Between 2600 to 1700 BC Harappa was one of the largest cities in the Indus Valley Civilization with a population of up to 40,000 people. [1] By 1800 BC By 1800 BCE, the Indus Valley Civilization saw the beginning of their decline: Writing started to disappear, standardized weights and measures used for trade and taxation purposes fell out of use, the connection with the Near East was interrupted, and some cities were gradually abandoned. [1] He wrote an article about them, attracting the attention of scholars, the caves contain drawings that range over periods from the Neolithic as early as 5,000 BC to 1,000 BCE. The youngest group of paintings have been in the news for a connection to the Indus Valley Civilization. [1] Papyrus Indus River Valley (page 53) 2500 BC - 1500 BC Around 2600 B.C. the various regional cultures were united in what is called the Indus Valley Civilization. [1] The Kulli culture, similar to those of the Indus Valley Civilization, was located in southern Balochistan (Gedrosia) ca. 2500 - 2000 BC. Agriculture was the economical base of this people. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization has phdthesis bibtex its earliest roots in cultures such as that of Mehrgarh, approximately 6000 BC. Cywilizacja doliny Indusu, zwana także Kulturą Indusu, Cywilizacją Indusu-Saraswati, Kulturą harappańską, Kulturą Mohendżo-Daro itp. [1] Evidence of writing was found at the Annau ruins in 2000. (SSFC, 5/13/01, p.A12) 2.3k BC Cultural exchange began between the Indus Valley civilization and Mesopotamia. (eawc, p.2) 2.291k BC - 2.254k BC Naram-Sin ruled Akkad. [1] Indus Valley Civilization (c. 33001300 BC, flowered 26001900 BC), abbreviated IVC, was an ancient riverine civilization that flourished. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization, as a new study conducted jointly by students from IIT-Kharagpur and ASI reveals, is not 5300 years old but over 8000 years old! This means that the Indus Valley Civilization is older than both the Mesopotamian (6500 BC-3800 BC) and Egyptian Civilizations (3200 BC- 525 BC). [1]

It flourished in the Indus and Ganges valleys from around 3300 BC. It is given this name as the first city belonging to this phase of the Indus Valley was excavated at Harappa, located in Punjab province of British India (now Pakistan). [1] It flourished in the Indus and Ganges valleys from around 3300 BC. The Indus civilization had indigenous roots and that its cultural precursors were the chalcolithic cultures of the northwest that flourished in the fourth and third millennia BC. Contrary to the views of some early scholars, Indus cities were not created either through the dissemination of the idea of civilization or by migration of population groups from West Asia. [1]

TheIndus Valley Civilization, which spread and flourished in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent from c. 3300 to 1300 BC in present-day Pakistan and northwest India, was the first major civilization in South Asia. [1] The people of the Indus Valley Civilization merged with the Aryans, and eventually became the Vedic civilization (1500 BC-500 BC). [1] Decline of Indus Valley Civilization The Indus Valley civilization was declined at late 1900 BC. There are various theory for describe of destruction of this civilization. [1] Around 2800 BC, the Kot Diji phase of the Indus Valley Civilization started. [1] Around 1800 1700 BC the Indus Valley Civilization began to decline, reasons for which are not entirely clear. [1] Between 1900-1300 BC the civilization declined and there were no more references to Meluhha (Mesopotamian name for Indus Valley Civilization landmass) in Mesopotamian finds. [1] The fictionalised story set in 2016 BC at the height of Indus Valley Civilization, and gives a interesting overview about the life of its inhabitants. [1] By around 1800 BC, the Indus Valley Civilization was starting to crack. [1] Much about the Indus Valley Civilization, which existed from about 3300-1300 BC, is still unknown. [1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. Hinduism was born in ancient India, the Vedas were written during the Indus Valley civilization. [1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. Linguists have cracked many tough scripts, from Mesopotamian cuneiform to Egyptian hieroglyphic to Central American Mayan glyphs, but there are a few ancient, mysterious scripts still in the field today, including the Indus Valley Civilization script of over four millennia ago, that are yet to be deciphered. [1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. The Indus Valley civilization lies pretty close to modern day Iran, so why not a link with ancient Persia or Elam pre-cultures.

[1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. Historical records from Mesopotamia describe regular trade with ‘Meluhha’ (the Indus Valley) from 2400-2000 B.C. C.E. to 600 B.C.E The Indus Valley Civilization The Indus river served as the basis that the civilization surrounded itself around. [1] Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were important centers of the Indus valley civilization.  This Indus Valley "civilization" flourished around 4000-1000 B.C. The discovery may mean that history books will have to be rewritten because earlier it was believed that the Indus Valley civilization was only 5,500 years old. [1]

The IVC was most restricted to the Indus Valley and its adjoining plains- however at the tail end of civilization some of it dispersed into areas beyond the IVC. Art of Indus valley Civilization by-Dhirendranath Thakur The Indus Valley Civilization was a Bronze Age civilization (33001300 B.C. The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilization (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE). [1] Indus Valley civilization is now considered as a continuation of the neolithic Mehrgarh culture which flourished between 7000BC to 5000BC. The overall period assigned to Indus Valley Civilization is 3300-1300 BC, with its mature period between 2600 to 1900 BC. Indus Valley Ancient Civilization (3300-1300 BC; mature period 2600-1900 BC) This is the Harappa site. [1]

The major events in the timeline of the Indus Valley are given below: Early Harappan Phase (3300 BC to 2600 BC) The early Harappan Phase lasted for approximately 700 years, starting with the Ravi Phase. [1] Late Harappan from 1900 to 1300 BC, marked by violence, breakdowns in social order, the abandonment of most settlements, and the eventual extinction of the Indus Valley people. [1] The prosperous and flourishing civilization of Indus Valley was brought to an end by the savage invasions of the Aryans about 1,500 B.C. An Indus Valley site has been found on the Oxus River at Shortughai in northern Afghanistan, in the Gomal River valley in northwestern Pakistan, at Manda,Jammu on the Beas River near Jammu, India, and at Alamgirpur on the Hindon River, only 28 km from Delhi. [1] It flourished in the Bronze Age (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE, pre-Harappan cultures starting c.7500 BCE) along the Indus River (hence called Indus Valley Civilization ) and the Ghaggar-Hakra River, which now lies in the area of modern Pakistan, North-West India and Afghanistan (covering an area of 1.25 million km 2 ). [1] The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilization (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE) extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India Along with Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, it was one of three early civilizations of the Old World, and the most widespread among them, covering an area of 1.25 million km2. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization ( IVC ) was a Bronze Age civilisation (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE, pre-Harappan cultures starting c.7500 BCE) in northwest Indian subcontinent (including present day Pakistan, northwest India) and also in some regions in northeast Afghanistan. [1]

The Indus Valley Civilization (also known as Harappan culture) has its earliest roots in cultures such as that of Mehrgarh, approximately 6000 BCE. The two greatest cities, Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, emerged circa 2600 BCE along the Indus River valley in Punjab and Sindh. [1] One of the acknowledgement thesis example earliest urban civilizations in India and in fact, in the world, was harappa culture of the indus the Indus Valley Civilization, also called the 1856 politic platforms Harappan Culture Indus Valley Civilisation, also known as 'Harappan Civilisation', was discovered as a consequence of the excavations conducted in 1920. [1] Culture of Indus Valley Civilization Religion  Some Indus valley seals show swastikas, which are found in other religions worldwide, especially in Indian religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.  The earliest evidence for elements of Hinduism are alleged to have been present before and during the early Harappan period.  Shiva lingam have been found in the Harappan remains. [1]

The great Indus Valley Civilization, located in modern-day India and Pakistan, began to decline around 1800 BCE. The civilization eventually disappeared along with its two great cities, Mohenjo-daro and Harappa. [1] Harappa and Mohenjo-daro were thought to be the two great cities of the Indus Valley Civilization, emerging around 2600 BCE along the Indus River Valley in the Sindh and Punjab provinces of Pakistan. [1] As the excavations at Harappa began in 1920s, during the era of British Indian Empire, merely 20 odd years before independence of both India and Pakistan, India can not claim the Indus Valley Civilization which mainly remained centered around the Indus River Valley, which entirely lay in Pakistan. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization is also known as the Harappa Civilization, after Harappa, the first of its sites to be excavated in the 1920s, in what was then the Punjab province of British India, and now is Pakistan. [1] The Cemetery H culture developed out of the northern part of the Indus Valley Civilization around 1700 BCE, in and around western Punjab region located in present-day India and Pakistan. [1] ANCIENT INDIA. Indus Valley Civilization 2500 B.C.E Developed along the Indus River in modern- day Pakistan Their cities were planned out and included. [1] The vast Indus Valley Civilization had technologically advanced Bronze Age cities that once flourished from northern India and Pakistan to Iran, and surrounded the river systems that fed the fertile Indus Valley. [1] Art of Indus valley Civilization by-Dhirendranath Thakur The Indus Valley Civilization was a Bronze Age civilization (33001300 B.C. The most likely thing that happened is during the early 2nd mellenium B.C. basically as we know now the Indus valley civilization did not get invaded it has been proven. [1] I. The Indus River Valley Civilization Over 5,000 years old! 2,500 BC developed on the banks of the Indus. [1] Indus River Valley Civilization Over 5,000 years old! 2,500 BC developed on the banks of the Indus The Indus civilization (c. 26001900 bc ) appears to have been heterarchical, which raises critical questions about how its infrastructure facilitated collective action.

Let’s wrap-up our 37 post analysis of what the world looked like from the end of the last Ice Age through the time of my novels in 3,203 BC to the collapse of the Sumerian culture in Mesopotamia, the Middle Kingdom in Egypt, and Harappan Civilization in the Indus Valley. [1] INDUS VALLEY CIVILIZATION Also referred to as the Harappa culture, the Indus Valley civilization was the earliest urban, state-level society in South Asia (2600-1900 b.c.) and was contemporaneous with state-level societies in Egypt and Mesopotamia. [1] The site of the ancient city contains the ruins of a Bronze Age fortified city, which was part of the Cemetery H culture and the Indus Valley Civilization, centered in Sindh and the Punjab. [1] Exploring the ruins of the ancient city of Mohenjo-daro, the most advanced of its time and one of the cities of the great Indus Valley civilization. [1] Out of the lot, Mohenjo-daro became the largest city of the Indus Valley Civilization and holds the multiple distinction of being one of the world's first major urban centers, as well as, at the time, one of the most sophisticated cities in the world and a global architectonical and engineering masterpiece. [1] Diagram of how Indus Valley cities were laid out A sophisticated and technologically advanced urban culture is evident in the Indus Valley Civilization making them the first urban centres in the region.

[1] The showcasing of the art, skills and craftsmanship of the Indus Valley civilization and their descendants is hoped to help fill in some of the gaps in understanding of the history and rich culture of ancient India. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization existed through its early years of 3300-1300 BCE, and its mature period of 2600-1900 BCE. The area of this civilization extended along the Indus River from what today is northeast Afghanistan, into Pakistan and northwest India. [1] In the bronze age The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilization (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE) mainly in the northwestern regions of South Asia, extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India. [1] The Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilization (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE) that was located in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent, consisting of what is now mainly present-day Pakistan and northwest India. [1]

Beginning Around five thousand years ago, an important civilization developed on the Indus River floodplain named the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) which was a Bronze Age Civilization (3300-1300 BCE; mature period 2600-1900 BCE). [1]

Ṣ aktism Local Religions Ṣ aivism Vaishnav ism BEFORE 2000 BCE: INDUS VALLEY CIVILIZATION - VEDIC? - PRE-VEDIC? Religious practices: Ritual bathing/purity, sacrifice, fertility rites (Much like the rest of the ancient world/. 900 BCE) Brahman: Brahman performing a Hindu ritual in Kerala, India. [1] The total geographic area encompassed by sites associated with the Indus Valley civilization is over 262,500 square miles (680,000 sq. km) and includes most of modern Pakistan and parts of western India and northern Afghanistan. [1] They wanted to prove that the Indus Valley civilization spread to other Indian sites like Bhirrana and Rakhigarrhi in Haryana, apart from the known locations of Harappa and Mohenjo Daro in Pakistan. [1] The History of India begins with the birth of the Indus Valley Civilization in such sites as Mohenjo-Daro, Harappa, and Lothal, and the coming of the Aryans.
