General observations Preface The epoch-making discoveries at Mohenjo-daro in the Larkana District of Sind have directed the attention of archaeologists all over the- world to this comparatively unknown corner of India. The history of her civilization has been carried back at a stretch to at least the fourth millennium B.C., an antiquity that now entitles her for the first time to enter into partnership with Egypt, Persia and Mesopotamia, and those centres of early culture that sprang up in Crete and other islands of the Mediterranean. But Mohenjo-daro was not the only site of this period in the Indus valley. The chalcolithic civilization which it represents must have spread over a wide area, as proved by similar discoveries already made at Harappa 1 in the Montgomery District of the Punjab, at a distance of about four hundred miles from Mohenjo-daro. In Sind itself there must have been many more stations wedded to this culture, and indeed occasional reports about the existence of earthen mounds in various localities outside Mohenjo-daro raised hopes for fresh discoveries. The need for a systematic survey of the Indus valley and its borderlands was keenly felt by the Indian Archaeological Department, almost from the very beginning of its work at Mohenjo-daro. In 1925-26, at the suggestion of Sir John Marshall, the then Director General of Archaeology in India, Mr. Hargreaves of the Archaeological Department conducted excavations at Nal in the Kalat State of Baluchistan and explored a few other sites in its vicinity; and later, in 1928-27 and 1927-28, a survey of Northern and Southern Baluchistan was carried out by Sir Aurel Stein. These operations yielded splendid results,2 showing the wide diffusion of the ` Indus Civilization` and at the same time bringing to light traces of allied cultures which could probably be affiliated, with certain reservations, to the Persian zone. But much spade-work was needed in the Indus valley itself without which a study of these materials would remain partial and incomplete. After his discovery of Mohenjo-daro in 1922, the late R. D. Banerji had collected, so far as he could, information about other probable sites in Sind, and supplied a list of them to the Archaeological Department. But very likely he had no opportunity of examining any of these sites himself. In 1925, Mr. K.N. Dikshit, then Superintendent of the Archaeological Survey, Western Circle, while carrying on excavations at Mohenjo-daro, examined two other chalcolithic sites, namely Lohumjo-daro in the Larkana District and Limo Junejo in the Upper Sind Frontier District. But further progress in pushing on this investigation could not be made owing to his transfer from Western India in 1926. Having had the good fortune to participate in the excavations at Mohenjo-daro since 1925, under Sir John Marshall, Rai Bahadur Daya Ram Sahni and Dr. B. J.H. Mackay, I had gained sufficient familiarity with the remains of the ` Indus` civilization. In the cold weather of 1927, a grant placed by Sir John-Marshall at my disposal enabled me to conduct excavations on a modest scale at the mounds of Jhukar near Larkana. During the following season, the duties at Mohenjo-daro having demanded my undivided attention, I could not resume the operations at Jhukar or proceed to any other fresh site. In 1928, Mr. Hargreaves was appointed Director General of Ar Printed Pages: 0. Seller Inventory # 62812
