An Indus-Saraswati Valley map

A fine map from Frontier Times showing pre Harappan sites, the Indus.Saraswati Valley sites and modern cities. The presumed course of the Ghaggar-Hakra must be close to the course of what was the Saraswati River. There is little doubt that some important coastal sites must now be submerged since the se levels were at least 10m lower than today during the peak of the civilisation. When settlements in the region started – perhaps 7,000 BCE – sea levels would have been 20 – 30m lower.

One Response to An Indus-Saraswati Valley map

    It still strikes me as questionable to use the Sanskrit term Saraswati to refer to a civilization that has no proven connection with Vedic culture. What did you think of all the controversy
    surrounding this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarasvati_River#Identification_theories

    Wikipedia’s article on the IVC also comments on this:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indus_Valley_Civilisation

    And the “Harrappan horse” controversy is also relevant. http://www.frontline.in/static/html/fl1720/17200040.htm
