New exploration in the Chitral Valley, Pakistan: an extension of the Gandharan Grave culture

  • Ihsan Ali (a1), Cathy Batt (a2), Robin Coningham (a2) and Ruth Young (a3)

New survey in the Chitral Valley has doubled the number of recorded Gandharan Grave culture sites in the region and extended their geographical range. The numbers and location of sites indicates that the Gandharan Grave culture was well established in the Chitral valley, suggesting that the valley may have been central to this cultural development, rather than marginal.
