Title:Nageshwar: A Centre of Harappan Shell Craft in Saurashtra
Author:Sonawane, V.H.
Enumeration:Vol. 55 No. 3; March 2004, pp. 15-23
Abstract:Nageshwar is the first exclusive Harappan shell-working site in India. The surface survey revealed several concentrations of shell material, while the excavations brought to light two distinct phases of Mature Harappan occupation, dominated by red ware, reserved slip ware, Prabhas ware, and other associated pottery types, and shell bangle pieces. Nagwada and Bagasra were two other contemporary shell working centres.
