Ancient Indus Valley civilization seals
Glazed steatite gaming piece, faience bead, and unfinished steatite seal (H99-3860/8756-30) from Room 202 (Trench 43).
Faience button seal (H99-3814/8756-01) with swastika motif found on the floor of Room 202 (Trench 43).
After removing the fallen walls, the interiors of the rooms were found to be filled with surprises. Here in Room 202 were scattered clay tops, beads, and inscribed seals (Trench 43).
High concentrations of objects such as these terra cotta seal and faience tablets indicate the significance of this part of the site (Trench 54 area) for obtaining further insights on the manufacture and use of inscribed pieces.
Seal fragment of a man with double bun and three fingered hand or trident. Trench 39 North, upper levels, Harappa Phase.
This type of seal is only found in the last part of the Harappan Phase, Period 3C. A similar rectangular seal was found on Mound F in the 1998 excavations of the circular platforms (Trench 43).
A large number of seals and inscribed objects were discovered in excavations on the eastern edge of Mound E from 1993 to 1997. This view of excavations in Trench 10W shows two rooms of houses along the edge of a north-south street.
