This chapter outlines the archaeological evidence related to the growth of village occupation west of the Delhi-Aravalli-Cambay axis of Indian geography. The evidence shows growth of distinctly agricultural communities in the vast stretch of land between Baluchistan and Bannu on the one hand and the area near Delhi and Gujarat on the other. It discusses agricultural life, domestication, tools, pottery, and burial culture of sites in Baluchistan, Bannu, the Gomal Valley, Piedmont and Kohistan, the Potwar Plateau, Indus-Hakra Plain, and the Aravalli Belt. It is in the course of this development that the roots of the subsequent Indus civilization lie.

Keywords:   village occupation, Baluchistan, Bannu, Aravalli Belt, agricultural communities, domestication, tools, pottery, burial culture, Indus civilization
