Rohri Hills

     In 1975-6, the Cambridge Archaeological Expedition made a preliminary survey of the

Paleolithic sites

in the

Rohri Hills

. According to their findings, the Rohri Hills were a source of chart for the manufacture of the

parallel-sided

blades used by the

Harappan

culture of 2300 -

1750 BC

.

     The most clearly differentiated Paleolithic site in the Rohri Hills was at their southern end, near the village of Chancha Baloch and only four kilometers from the

pre-Harappan

settlement of

Kot Diji

. Spread over an area of about 5,000 square meters, on a largely sand- free area between the dunes, are found Middle and Upper Paleolithic artifacts and factory debris.

     An extensive series of working floors were also found close to a hamlet known as Nawab Punjabi. The discovery of factory sites representing all phases of the

Stone Age

in the lower

Indus Valley

has added more depth to our understanding of
civilization
in prehistoric Sindh.
