General View of Mound F from SE before excavation 2

"The mound was covered with potsherds and brick bats, but no brick foundations were visible anywhere that might have served as a starting point."

- Daya Ram Sahni, Annual Progress Report of the Archaeological Survey [of India], Hindu and Buddhist Monuments, Northern Circle for the Year Ending 31st March 1921, p. 9.

"In addition to the scattered pottery and brickbats, the eroded surface has thousands of artifacts, including stone beads, inscribed seals, pieces of gold and copper artifacts that the local people come to collect after every rain. These objects were left in the soil after the brick mining activity that removed most of the standing brick architecture of this part of the site. The shrubs that are growing in areas where moisture collects were all that remained after grazing of animals and firewood collection. A modern view of this area after excavation and from the same general direction is seen in "Granary area". Surveying Mound E after the rain can be seen in Mound E surface collection and Terra cotta seal and faience tablets."
