Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The author presents evidence for an unbroken cultural sequence in the Greater Indus Valley from the Neolithic into the Mature Indus, and for links between communities in Baluchistan and those in southeastern Iran and Afghanistan.
