Granary Edge and Great Bath Drain, Mohenjo-daro [153] 37

Granary Edge and Great Bath Drain, Mohenjo-daro

REM Granary

The edge of the "granary" structure was damaged by the ancient construction of the drain for the Great Bath that is seen at the left edge of the photo. This feature indicates that the drain was constructed after this part of the "granary" was built. A man is seen standing in narrow passage that runs between blocks of fired brick that Wheeler interpreted as being the hollow air passages under the granary. The overall brick structure appears to be the foundation of a larger wooden superstructure.
