Lothal

Prominent city of the ancient Indus valley civilization. Now in Gujarāt, India.

Lothal was one of the many cities found in the Indus Valley civilization. Archaeological evidence from Lothal tells us that it was an industrial area. Metals, semi-precious stones, statues and beads were found. Several weapons, ornaments, seals and workshops were also found. A dockyard was also found which may have been used to ship goods to other civilizations like Mesopotamia.
