Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this study, metric data for human skeletal remains from Harappan phase Cemetery R37 at Harappa are used comparatively to examine biological continuity in the Indus Valley and to look for potential effects of a changing diet on dental health and morphology. The data indicate a biological discontinuity during the Early Indus, when the people at the site of Mehrgarh are most similar to people from the Iranian Plateau and the Near East. The authors also compare cranial and dental data from other sites in Pakistan and Afghanistan pertaining to the Indus Neolithic through Vedic traditions with traditions to the west and east, and with some modern populations. Most materials pertaining to the Early Indus tradition are from Chalcolithic Mehrgarh or MR2.
