Ancient skeletons found in India

Archaeologists in India say they have unearthed four human skeletons dating back to the oldest civilisation in the subcontinent.

The ancient Harappan civilisation dates back around 4,000 years and was first discovered at Mohenjo Daro in what is now Pakistan in the 1920s.

The remains recovered from a cemetery in the northern state of Haryana are of two adult males, a female and a child.
Scholars hope the latest find will shed new light on the Harappan people.

Archaeologists and scientists from India and South Korea have been carrying out excavations at the cemetery at Rakhigarhi village in Haryana's Hissar district since 2013.


Another ancient site that keeps on giving. This often overlooked Cradle Civ seriously needs to be fully explored and it's contributions to humanity need better acknowledgement in my not so humble opinion. The Harappan people are some of the most intriguing in my book. I'd love to be on a dig there.

Looks like they found an ancestor of Homer Simpson.
