Excavations at Mohenjodaro, Pakistan: The Pottery

Two leading US archaeologists examine the pottery from Mohenjo-daro to probe some of the most valuable clues to the development of Indus Valley culture.

The pottery of Mohenjo-daro, one of the two major urban centers of the Indus Valley civilization (2500-2000 B.C.) is described and documented. The authors survey Harappan ceramic technology and style, and develop an important and unique approach to vessel form analysis and terminology. Included is Leslie Alcock's account of the pottery from the 1950 excavations by Sir Mortimer Wheeler.
