|153. "Granary area"|
Limited excavations in the granary area at Harappa starting in 1997 (Trench 41 area) and 1999 have begun a new examination of this important building, first excavated in the 1920s. Although referred to as a granary, this characterization by earlier archaeologists of similar large structures at Mohenjo-daro and Harappa is not borne out by any compelling evidence such as grain deposits. The structure, the largest known from a Harappan site, could have served any number of other functions.
