6000 BC SITE
Of many excavations undertaken over a long period of time in the Subcontinent, the one carried out at Mehrgarh is in real sense epoch making.
Not only has it provided the earliest evidence for settled life in the Indian Subcontinent going back to the tenth millennium BC (9000 BC) but has also provided solid evidence for the steady and gradual emergence of the Harappan elements.
Ultimate proof to disprove 1500 BC Aryan invasion theory declaring Aryans.
The evidence from Mehrgarh laid to rest the earlier controversial theory of the Western world being responsible for the emergence of the Harappan Civilization.
The excavations have demonstrated seven different stages of development prior to the emergence of the Harappan culture in the last stage (VIII)
As is evident the process of transformation from Early to Mature Harappan appears to have happened simultaneously over the major Harappan region including
Indus-Saraswati basin and
Datta-treya Yog Tradition
