"The Indus Valley Civilization was a Bronze Age civilization (3300–1300 BCE; mature period 2600–1900 BCE) in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent, consisting mainly of what is now Pakistan, and parts of India, Afghanistan and Iran. The civilization was spread over some 1,260,000 km², making it the largest known ancient civilization. The Indus Valley Civilization is also known as the Harappan Civilization, as the first of its cities to be unearthed was located at Harappa, excavated in the 1920s in what was at the time the Punjab province of British India (now in Pakistan). Excavation of Harappan sites has been ongoing since 1920, with important breakthroughs occurring as recently as 1999."
From the flyleaf: "The most ancient civilization of South Asia, variously known as the Harappan, Indus or Indus-Sarasvati Civilization, far excelled its contemporaries in other parts of Asia in a number of ways. Not only did it cover a much greater area than did any other civilization, but it also produced urban centers, duly fortified and characterized by meticulous town planning, efficient drainage system, etc. This book presents a multi-dimensional study of this grand civilization."
