Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The author discusses excavation finds at Harappa that provide clues to settlement use. Large mud-brick revetment walls, built at the end of Period 1, indicate early city planning. Such construction would have required a degree of sociopolitical organization capable of producing the materials and directing the labor involved. Architecturally, there is evidence for continuity of use in some areas of the site from period to period. Five periods of occupation are reflected in the deposits; only Period 1 and 2 deposits, and the lowest levels of the Vats and Wheeler excavations, pertain to the Early Indus.
