The discovery of Harappa, and quickly afterwards, Mohenjo-Daro, was the end result of work beginning in 1861 with the beginning of the Archaeological Survey of India in the British Raj. Excavation of Harappan websites has actually been recurring considering that 1920, with essential developments taking place as just recently as 1999. There were earlier and later on societies, commonly called Early Harappan and also Late Harappan, in the exact same area of the Harappan Civilisation. The Harappan civilisation is in some cases called the Mature Harappan society to distinguish it from these cultures. Since 1999, more than 1,056 cities and also settlements had actually been located, which 96 have actually been dug deep into, generally in the basic region of the Indus and Ghaggar-Hakra Rivers as well as their tributaries. Among the negotiations were the significant city centres of Harappa, Mohenjo-daro (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Ganeriwala in modern Pakistan; as well as Dholavira and also Rakhigarhi in present-day India.
