Over two days of a high-powered gathering of Harappa scholars, the event followed the opening of the special exhibition ‘Rediscovering Harappa: Through the Five Elements’ at the Lahore Museum on 21st November, 2015.
The lecture series aimed to promote an intellectual exchange and dialogue between academics, researchers, field professionals and museum curators engaged with Indus material and have contributed to keeping the legacy of Harappa alive. It featured a prestigious line-up of ten speakers who spoke about the Harappan Civilization from various facets.

with the docent.
§  Viewing a Wheel-Thrown Clay Pottery Demonstration conducted by an expert potter and a hands-on ‘Harappan Seal-Making
