  • question_answer Describe the different arguments given by the archaeologists over the central authority of Harappa.

    Answer:

    1. Some archaeologists are of the opinion that Harappan society had no rulers and that everybody enjoyed equal status.
    2. Others feel there was no single ruler but several, that Mohenjodaro had a separate ruler, Harappa another and so forth.
    3. Yet others argue that there was a single state, given the similarity in artefacts, the evidence for planned settlement, the standardized ratio of brick size and the establishments near sources of raw material.
    4. Of all, the last theory seems the most plausible as it is unlikely that entire communities could have collectively made and implemented such complex decisions.
