Saurashtra and the Harappan Sites of Padri and Kuntasi

Title:Saurashtra and the Harappan Sites of Padri and Kuntasi
Author:Shinde, Vasant
Enumeration:Vol. 55 No. 3, March 2004, pp. 8-14
Abstract:The excavations at Padri (in Saurashtra) have revealed three periods of settlement: Early Harappan (circa 3300-2600 BCE), Mature Harappan (circa 2500-2000 BCE), and Early Historic (circa 2nd century BCE - 2nd century CE). The Early Harappan period is characterized by rectangular and squarish mud houses, crafts, coarse pottery, and a copper technology. The Mature phase is indicated by four phases of mud houses and typical red ware. Kuntasi, also in Saurashtra, has brought up a Mature Harappan stone fortification, a "jetty", pottery and pottery kilns, and two Late Harappan houses with furnaces.
