This is particularly true with regard to the cultural and historical background of the migration of the Vedic Aryans. g. the Kubha and Suvastu rivers which are now known as Kabul and Swat rivers. In this region archaeologists have traced the ‘Gandharan Grave Culture’ with distinctive traits of new burial rites, fire altars, horses and the use of bronze and copper. But in this case, too, archaeologists are divided on the issue whether these findings can be ascribed to the early pre-Rigvedic Aryans or already to groups of Vedic Aryans who were on their way to the plains of the Indus valley.

It almost seems as if the people of Amri wanted to keep in touch with the early culture of Baluchistan and considered it as something of a daring venture to settle in the great plains near the river. This new venture was started only about 2,000 years after the early cultures of Baluchistan appeared in places like Mehrgarh. Unlike Mehrgarh which started in the seventh millennium BC, Amri’s earliest strata go back only as far as the early fourth millennium. But Amri and similar sites in the lower Indus valley were inhabited throughout the millennia of the Indus civilisation and, therefore, provide interesting evidence of the cultural evolution in the valley.

The four stages of the Indus valley culture are clearly exhibited here at Amri: Pre-Harappan, Early Harappan which is a phase of transition, Mature Harappan and the Jhangar culture which is a regional 21 EARLY CIVILISATIONS OF THE NORTHWEST variation of the Late Harappan.
