Mohenjo-daro Granary "Loading Dock" [177] 24

REM Granary

Wheeler had workmen lifting bags of grain with ropes to illustrate his interpretation of the loading dock at the north edge of the so-called "granary". The square voids in the wall face would have been where wooden beams were inserted to support a wooden staircase or platforms. The areas where the workmen are standing would not have been a place to stand in antiquity.
