From Rojdi to Harappa and Beyond: Regional Variation in the Indus Civilization
Author(s): Rita Wright
Steve Weber's pioneering research on botanical remains and environment has provided foundational studies for subsistence and settlement in the Indus civilization. Results of his field research at Harappa in the Punjab, Rojdi in Gujarat, and Farmana in Haryana focused in three key areas where major Indus centers were established. Differences in archaeobotanical remains provided a firm basis from plant remains and long-term agricultural packages in the three regions. These ranged from multi-cropping strategies that included overlapping plant usage to differences in selection of dominant crops Although Weber emphasized their environmental differences as selective factors, his emphasis on choice as a major determinant allowed for comparisons between the early remains of the Indus civilization and recent trends in the three regions.
