Ancient Indus food and culinary practices and evidence.

Copper in the Harappan Age

"The Harappans are referred to as a Bronze Age culture," writes Vasant Shinde, "and they used copper and bronze to manufacture axes, adzes, knives, fish hooks, chisels, pots and pans and jewelry in form of bangles, beads, or diadem strips. The Harappans seem to have preferred pure copper, which was manufactured into objects by beating the metal sheets into the required shape.
