Before the discovery of the Harappan Civilization it was thought by many scholars that there is a gap in the cultural history of South Asia and that  the settled life in this part took place only in the 6th century BCE. The discovery has not only bridged the so-called cultural gap but also in one stroke
established that the settled life in this part was pushed back by more than two thousand years. Continuous research activities for the past one hundred years have enabled us to understand many facets of this great Civilization. The present workshop on Harappan Culture: New Dimensions and Paradigm Shift holds an account of new scientific discoveries and researches carried out by archaeologists since the time of discovery of the Harappan site of over a century ago. The workshop will be conducted as a series of lectures focusing on paradigm shift in Harappan studies from traditional understanding of material culture to analytical and interpretative approach. More often archaeology is stigmatized to be a fact-centric subject in  nature but the present workshop aims at a new approach to help understand the story and facts behind the origin and gradual deveopment of the Harappan Civilization. Topics related to achievements of the Harappan Civilization in the field of basic sciences and technologies, will be discussed at large. The contributions this Civilization has made to the history of South Asia and the world along with its relevance to contemporary society will be explored in this workshop. This workshop is designed for professionals, students and layman. It not only incorporates latest data and hypothesis about overall lifestyle including social, religious, political organizations, material culture but also analyses interpretations of scientific data to understand their health, diet and authors of the culture.
