Bronze Age civilization (3300–1300 BCE; mature period 2600–1900 BCE). In 1856, British engineers John and William Brunton laid the East Indian Railway Company line connecting the cities of Karachi and Lahore. The Indus Valley Civilization encompassed most of Pakistan, extending from Balochistan to Sindh, and extending into modern-day Indian states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, and Punjab, with an upward reach to Rupar on the upper on the Sutlej. There is evidence of dry river beds overlapping with the Hakra channel in Pakistan and the seasonal Ghaggar River in India. Many Indus Valley (or Harappan) sites have been discovered along the Ghaggar-Hakra beds. According to some archaeologists, over 500 Harappan sites have been discovered along the dried-up river beds of the Ghaggar-Hakra River and its River and its tributaries, in contrast to only about 100
along the Indus and its tributaries. In this blog we will discuss about Indus Valley Civilization.
