Above: Jonathan Mark Kenoyer and Excavators at Harappa

Excerpts have been taken from the preliminary reports submitted after the close of each season to the Department of Archaeology and Museums, Government of Pakistan. These will convey to the reader the character of the project as it developed over the five years from 1986 to 1990. Interpretive statements presented in the reports of individual seasons are of a preliminary nature and relevant to the particular season. More synthetic discussions can be found in the papers in this volume, while final evaluation must await completion of data analysis and stratigraphic correla­tions. Personnel for each season are generally not noted in the following text except in the case of specialists. Instead they are listed in Chapter 12 of this volume. Likewise, funding sources are acknowledged in Chapter 1.
