Review of the Harappan Culture in North-western Maharashtra: Cataloging a database

It has generally been suggested that the migration of the Harappan people ended in the Indus-Saraswati divide at Gujarat. Further study supported by the Nehru Trust has provided strong evidence to suggest that Harappan Culture moved considerably further beyond Gujarat and indeed spread deep into the Deccan (North-western region of Maharashtra). Although Harappan culture underwent significant changes during this period, identifiable practices were retained. The culture is recognizable as Harappan, though one may consider it a late phase transformed by the shift in geography.
