Which Ancient Indus City was the First to be Discovered by Archaeologists?

Answer: 

Harappa is the right answer. It was first excavated by an archaeologist, Alexander Cunningham in 1872. He had visited the site as early as 1853. However, despite finding a seal and surveying the ruins, Cunningham did not understand the significance of his find. It was not until 1924, following excavations in Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, that the two cities were recognized as part of the same ancient civilization. Even then, it was not until the finds were published in the Illustrated London News that other archaeologists were able to conclusively show that these cities were about 2,000 years earlier than expected in ancient Indian history. This story, and the larger fascinating story of the discovery of the ancient Indus civilization, is told by Nayanjot Lahiri at the University of Delhi in her recent book, Finding Forgotten Cities How the Indus Civilization was Discovered, published in paperback
