The ruins in Harrappa — one of the principle sites of the Indus civilization — were visited and described by 19th century British explorers and some of them even guessed that underneath the mound lay the relics of an ancient city.
A proper excavation of Harrappa had to wait till 1921 upto which date it “teetered on the verge of being excavated”.
Before excavations at Harrappa could proceed apace, news came that Rakhaldas Banerji, a historian and archaeologist from Calcutta, had discovered in Mohenjo-daro in Sind seals similar to those found in Harrappa.
