[Publication] A young couple's grave found in the Rakhigarhi cemetery of the Harappan Civilization

Image
Our paper on "A young couple's grave found in the Rakhigarhi cemetery of the Harappan Civilization" was published in Anatomy and Cell Biology.

The Harappan Civilization, one of the earliest complex societies in the world, flourished on the Indian subcontinent. Although many additional Harappan settlements and cemeteries have been discovered and investigated, no coupled burials at Harappan cemeteries have been reported to date. In 2013–2016, we excavated the cemetery of the Rakhigarhi site (Haryana), the largest city of the Harappan Civilization. At the site, we found a grave that turned out to be a coupled (joint) burial of the primary type. This report is the first anthropologically confirmed case of coupled burial from a Harappan cemetery.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

We politely call for abstracts for a session of upcoming “The 3rd SEAMEO SPAFA International Conference on Southeast Asian Archaeology” that will be held in Bangkok, Thailand (June 17-21, 2019). Our session will be about “the Life of Urban and Rural Societies in Ancient Asia”, in which we will discuss about the diverse lives of ancient people in different environments of rural and urban societies through various research techniques on multiple regions in Asia. If this session can be held due to your participation, it will be an important opportunity for us to review the most updated achievements of archaeology concerning this subject.

This session aims to bring together researchers from Asia to discuss diverse aspects of Early Asian societies; daily life, health, social institution, ritual landscape and complex relationship between urban and rural societies. The movement of people, goods and resources keep in close connections. It is said that everyone has clear id…
