How was the Indus Valley civilisation discovered?

In 1920-1921 the first evidence

of the Indus Valley civilisation

was discovered.

It was a set of engraved seals

found near the town of Harappa,

like the ones shown in the picture

Following this discovery, a team

of archaeologists including

Rakhal Das Banerjee, John Marshall, E.J.H Mackay and M.S.Vats excavated the area and found the remains of buildings and streets.

It soon became clear that what they had found was evidence of an ancient civilisation.
