Key Points:

  • The discovery of the structure of some dwellings, a kitchen complex, and a 5000-year-old jewellery-making factory indicates that the site was once a very major commercial centre.
  • Copper and gold jewellery that had been concealed for thousands of years were also discovered.
  • Graveyards have been discovered in the excavation sites at Sinauli in Uttar Pradesh, which gained attention for its Bronze Age solid-disk wheel carts discovered in 2018, which were interpreted by some as horse-pulled “chariots.”
  • Archaeologists say the graveyards show that the civilisation believed in life after death.
  • In the previous two months, ASI has made many findings in Rakhi Garhi, indicating that the civilisation is slowly heading toward maturity.
  • There were also thousands of earthen jars, royal seals, and children’s toys discovered.
