Secrets from the Ancient Civilization of Harappa In India
The Discovery of the ruins of Harappa in India has become the center of attraction for archeologists from all over the world. Recently while they were busy unearthing a part of the graveyard they found a grave which left these experts to ponder a little more about 4,500 years old ruins.
Archeologists worked in India at the Harrapa site known as Rakhigrhi from 2013 to 2016. Postgraduates of Deccan College from an Indian college were working in collaboration with the Institute of Forensic Science at South Korea at that site.
Professor Vasant Shinde was leading this project from Deccan College.
Now a day Rakhigarhi is a typical village of India but it was a significant part of Harappa culture. That civilization flourished in some parts of Pakistan and India about 4,600 years ago. Archeologists are excavating on this site since 1963 but they could not be able to work consistently due to the accusation of misuse of budget fixed for this work. As Mr. Nath has been involved in manipulating the false bills and found guilty of corruption.
According to Hindustan Times Nath got a rigorous punishment of two and a half years in prison.
In 2013 experts got back to work in Rakhigarhi and this time Professor Shinde found the buried treasure from as old as 5,000 years back. There are nine main dunes altogether at Rakhigarhi and experts found old utensils, jewelry, and statues there. Recently they have found a strange grave with body remains of a couple.
While Shinde’s team was working on the cemetery of Rakhigarhi they obviously found graves but when they dig through one of the graves it was a mutual grave of a couple. And Forensic Lab reports says that those skeletons were of a man and a woman. They were found in a position by lying facing each other and it is presumed that they were close or might be lovers. The expert suggested that man would measure as 5’8 tall and woman stood 6 feet tall. There are no sign of violence on their body so they never got dead in a blood shoot. Different articles like a beaded string and red utensils have been found from that grave. They both had a shabby set of teeth might because of their diet.
But the question is why that man and woman buried together. How is it possible they got naturally dead at the same instance and were buried in a mutual grave? So that they would remain with each other forever despite being dead. Or they were buried alive as some sort of punishment or they got dead in an attempt to hide there. That’s why they had containers with some food or drinks.
Shinde told in an interview with The Times of India that we can only make an assumption about this grave with two bodies and there is chance that we are totally wrong in our evaluations.
Another mutual grave was found in Lothal with two pairs of human bodies. But those bodies were lying on top of each other with signs of injuries on their head. God knows what else is yet to be discovered by the archeologists from the ruins of Harappa civilization.
