7 Summary and conclusion Although studies of the Late Harappan occupations at Harappa are not yet complete, this brief overview suggests that earlier models of the Late Harappan period need to be substantially revised. Important continuities are seen in basic features of architectural traditions as well as many other technologies, such as faience production and certain aspects of pottery making. On the other hand, discontinuities in the use of seals, weights, and writing provide evidence for significant changes in key technological and cultural features that were associated with the earlier Harappan period.

Instead of technological stagnation and reversals, we see evidence of more highly refined techniques of firing pottery and making faience. The earliest evidence for glass production is seen during this time along with new techniques for drilling hard stone beads (Meadow et al. 1996). With all of these new developments, it is also important to note the relatively sudden disappearance of cubical stone weights, the Indus script, and Indus seals with script and animal motifs (Kenoyer 1998).
