Rangpur

 

the remains of a multilayered settlement of sedentary agricultural tribes near the village of the same name in the state of Gujarat, India. As a result of excavations, conducted from 1930 through the 1950’s, three periods have been identified: Rangpur I, a Mesolithic habitation site of the third millennium B.C.; Rangpur II, a Harappa settlement of the 20th to 14th centuries B.C.; and Rangpur III, a settlement of the ocher-col-ored pottery culture of the 13th to 11th centuries B.C. Defensive structures, a drainage system, ceramic pottery, and objects of copper and bronze reveal that Rangpur II was one of the southern outposts of the Harappa civilization. The evolution of this complex into the post-Harappa culture of Rangpur III refutes the theory that the Harappa civilization was completely destroyed during the Aryan invasion.
