INDUS (HARAPPAN) CIVILIZATION AND THE AEGEAN: Parallels and Affinities

ByDimitrios Konidaris

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Indus Valley civilization is one of the greatest aquatic cultures of antiquity along with those of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Bactria - Margiana and China. It has been claimed to represent the easternmost manifestation of a 3rd millennium interregional urbanization and trade network that included the Nile Valley and the area expanding from the Mediterranean Sea to the East throughout the Iranian plateau to the wider Indus region. Masterpieces of these cultures including jewelry and fine vessels share a corpus of common forms and imagery, demonstrating not only the breadth but also the depth of intercultural exchange along the vast trading network that stretched between the Mediterranean and the Indus river. On the basis of archaeological evidence, the existence of indirect contacts between the Aegean and the Indus Valley civilization can validly be inferred. The two civilizations flourished in this first early cosmopolitan context, taking advantage of achievements made in distant places.
