an archaeological culture of the Aeneolithic epoch and the early Bronze Age in Sind and southern Baluchistan (Pakistan). Named after findings at the site of the village of Amri (Sind).

The Amri culture was investigated by the Indian archaeologist N. Majumdar from 1934 to 1935. It is characterized by glazed painted ceramic ware with geometric ornamentation. At some sites Amri ceramics are found under a layer containing Harappa ceramics, so that the Amri culture can be regarded as pre-Harappa or early Harappa (fourth to third millennia B.C.). The Amri culture displays a similarity to the cultures of Iran and Middle Asia (Annau) and a link with the cultures of northern Baluchistan (findings at Nal).
