In the street levels above the drain a collection of banded sandstone and banded terracotta beads were discovered.
This view along Drain  into the mound shows details of the brick construction, the robbed out area at the east end of the drain (background), sloping strata above indicating the existence of an open street drain along the same line as the earlier
Brick robbing from both directions removed all but the central portion of this drain, but the remaining contents provide an important sequence of Harappan pottery spanning at least 200 years from 2400-2200 BC.
A portion of a large brick drain (Feature 8) was discovered beneath the Harappan wall (see Image 63). This drain runs E-W and would probably have emptied into a larger N-S drain that flowed to the North through a now-missing gateway.
The reconstructed brick wall is covered each year with a protective coating of clay and straw plaster. The original structure and unexcavated levels remain safely buried beneath a layer of bricks and back dirt.
The original excavated structure here is being buried beneath a protective layer made from salvaged ancient Harappan bricks. A distinct layer of modern clay and straw plaster separates the original building from the reconstruction.
