Jhangar

Jhangar

 

a post-Harappan archaeological culture (approximately the 12th-11th century B.C.). The culture was discovered in the 1920’s at the village of Jhangar and a series of other settlements in Sind, Pakistan. The culture has been most clearly traced in Chanhu-Daro, where the level with the Jhangar culture lay above the level with the post-Harappan culture known as Jhukar. The founders of the Jhangar culture occupied Chanhu-Daro for a short time after it was abandoned by the “Jhukarites.” The resemblance of the Jhangar culture to the cultures of northern Baluchistan and Iran allows the supposition that it arose as a result of the gradual penetration of tribes from these regions into the Indus valley.
