Weathered Skeleton from Harrapan Civilisation

National Museum of India in New Delhi beholds many unique and antique scriptures from stone ages to modern ages.

Lying in the Harappan gallery is this weathered skeleton from the Harappan Civilisation or Indus Valley Civilisation. This is one of the best-preserved burial of a woman from the pre-historic era.

The woman, here, is wearing a couple of bangles in her left hand which indicates that she was married at the time of her death. The funerary pots arranged around her head suggest a belief in ‘Life After Death’.
