Indus Valley Civilization: Faces of the people of the Indus Valley Civilization: Finding out how was they looked: For the first time, scientists from three countries including India have succeeded in drawing the exact shape of the face of the inhabitants of the Indus Valley Civilization. Scientists made faces out of the skulls of 2 out of 37 people found in Rakhigarhi, 4,500 years old Haryana. The team of 15 scientists and 6 academics used craniofacial reconstruction (CFR) technology to create the true face of skulls through their computed tomography (CT) data.
- Rakhigarhi is in Haryana, which is the largest archaeological site of the Indus Valley Civilization.
- Scientists from India, South Korea and the UK made faces from the skulls found in the excavation
- The team of 15 scientists and 6 academics used craniofacial reconstruction technique using computed tomography data
- Scientists made faces out of the skulls of 2 out of 37 people found in Rakhigarhi, 4,500 years old Haryana.
- Pro. Vasant Shinde said- The people of Rakhigarhi had developed the urban civilization
After this achievement of scientists, it has become easy to guess how the inhabitants of the Indus Valley looked. Scientists from India, South Korea and the UK participated in the case study. The case study was led by Professor Vasant Shinde and Professor Wan Xu Lee of South Korea, published in Anatomical Science International. The National Geographic Society funded the project. Rakhigarhi is a village in Hisar district of Haryana, which is considered to be the largest archaeological site of the Indus Valley Civilization.
There was no guess other than the statue of Priest King
Experts say that till now we had no idea how the people of the Indus Valley civilization looked, but now the shapes of their faces have been estimated somewhat. It was difficult to do so far, because this civilization had not yet been discovered enough and the figures found so far to reconstruct the physical shape of the inhabitants of this civilization. By Aj were not enough. Apart from the famous statue of Priest King from Mohenjodaro, not a single artwork was found here, so that the physical structure of the people of that time could be prepared.
Haryana is the foster of Indian civilization
Today’s Rakhigarhi was the first planned city (planned city) of the country at that time. The discovery was made in 2015 under the leadership of Professor Vasant Shinde. Many skeletons and remains of civilization were found in it. Till now, the 4500-year-old Harappan civilization, located around the Indus Valley in Sindh, Pakistan, was considered the oldest civilization in the country. The Harappan civilization was settled by our people, not outsiders, so Haryana is considered as the foster of Indian civilization.
