INDIAN ARCHAEOLOGY
 
Harappans in the Ganga Valley: New Discoveries
Speaker: Dr. Bhuvan Vikrama, Archaeological Survey of India

Chair: Shri B.M. Pande
 
The Harappan presence in the east of Yamuna has been attested at Alamgirpur (Baghpat) and at Hulas (Saharanpur), however, with an admixture of local or regional cultural elements, it represents a diluted form of the Harappans or its rural manifestation with no urban signatures. Recent, discovery of a large collection of copper objects from Harinagar (Bijnor) and a small scale excavation at Sakatpur (Saharanpur) yielding the copper hoard implements with Harappan artefacts has brought us to a point where a rethink of the Harappan presence in Yamuna-Ganga doab and beyond becomes imperative. The present talk will focus on the Harappan evidences found in this region and will discuss their significance and relevance
