New Harrapan Site Discovered in Nakhatrana taluka

As many of you know, I have a great fascination with the Gandhara and Harappan civilizations. Recently, the Department of Archaeology of Pune’s Deccan College and Gujarat’s archaeology department, discovered a new Harappan archaeological site at the Kotada Bhadali village area in Nakhatrana taluka of Kutch district, which dates back to 3000 BC. A detailed excavation is planned in January to investigate further.

“In January, extensive digging will be done on all sides of the fortification wall to understand the exact nature of construction style and its layout. This will help us understand if it is really a fortification wall. If so, what is it they were guarding their settlement from?”

Y S Rawat, the state’s director of archaeology, said, “Primary excavations have showed that the site probably belongs to late Harappan period around 3000 BC, but the data available from the excavation is too little to determine the exact period. We will carry out more studies to confirm the period and other facts.”
