Investigations at Antroli: A late Harappan site and maritime archaeological exploration on the coast of Navibandar, Saurashtra, Gujarat
MetadataShow full item record
In an effort to thoroughly document archaeological sites along the Saurashtra Coast (before they vanish due to rapid developmental activities), a protohistoric site located at Antroli near Madhopur was chosen to assess the earliest antiquities of the region. Our investigation revealed habitation deposits of two periods - the 2nd millennium B.C. and the Early Medieval period. The antiquities indicate that this coastal site might have been a fishing village during the protohistoric period. Coastal explorations at Navibandar yielded the remains of an ancient jetty, road, and, bullock-cart marks, besides a composite type of anchor.
