The Harappan Tradition is web-based attempt
at an evolutionary ethnological synthesis of the cultural phenomena known
variously as the Indus Valley or Harappan Civilization. What I mean by
evolutionary is that as I read I will continually rewrite sections and
re-synthesis the data. I want this to be a universal volume which will
almost immediately reflect changes in our understanding of the Harappan
I will begin by dumping notes and short
sections from old papers onto the Harappan Tradition categories below. At
first I will make little attempt to organize the information, when the
information reaches critical mass I will write a proper description.
Please comment as often as possible. If
I say something stupid please say so. If I miss a reference tell me. I need
all the help I can get. See Updates.
