Kulli culture

The Kulli culture was a prehistoric culture in Southern Baluchistan, Pakistan (Gedrosia), ca. 2500 - 2000 B.C.E.

The culture is named after an archaeological site discovered by Sir Aurel Stein. Several settlement sites are known but very few excavated. Some of them have the size of small towns and are similar to those of the Indus Valley Civilization. The houses are built of local stone. Agriculture was the economical base of this people. At several places dams were found, providing evidence for a highly developed water management system. The pottery and other artifacts are similar to those of the Indus Valley Civilization and it is not clear whether the Kulli culture is a local variation of the Indus Valley Civilization or an own culture complex.
