Pak-Jap Archaeological mission 2004-07 Peshawar (2)

Pak-Jap Archaeological mission 2004-07 Peshawar (2)_a0186568_3225950.jpgHere I will illustrate a summary of re- assement work on chipped stone tools of Rehman Dehri site.
Rehman Dehri (RHD) is the well-known Early Harappan site. The site is at Dera Ismail Khan district, Khyber Pakhtonkhwa Province (former NWFP), Pakistan, 31°57'00"N, 70°46'00"E. The site is located in Gomal Plain, on the right bank of Indus.

The site was excavated by Prof. Farazand A. Durrani (Peshawar University), in 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980 and 1991. Excavation reports are published as special volumes of Ancient Pakistan (Bulletin of the department of Pak-Jap Archaeological mission 2004-07 Peshawar (2)_a0186568_3511994.jpgarchaeology, Univ. of Peshawar).
Researchers recognized 3 period on stratigraphy and pottery typology. RHDI, the lowest level is Tochi-Gomal phase. RHDII and III are Kot-Diji phase. And the site was deserted before the Mature Harappan period.
Rich materials including not only pottery but also beads made of gold, lapis-lazri and other semi-precious stones, ivoly, talc paste and teracotta, seals, figurines and other miscellaneous objects were uncovered from each Pak-Jap Archaeological mission 2004-07 Peshawar (2)_a0186568_425080.jpg layers.
A large number of chipped stones were also un- covered. However there are no detailed description of stone tools.
Therefore our reassesment work started on classification and measurement of each pieces of chipped stone.
