Harappan Culture



Harappan culture spread throughout the indus valley. The culture was based on agriculture. The Harappan cities show a remarkable uniformity in religion and culture. The housing suggests that social divisions in the society were not great. Artifacts such as clay and wooden chirldrens toys suggests a relatively prosperous society that could afford to produce nonessential goods. Few weapons of warfare have been found suggesting that conflict was limited.


The presence of animals images on many types of artifacts suggests that animals were an important part of the culture. However some of the seals used to mark trade portray beasts with parts of of several different animals.
