Ancient Cities of the Indus Valley Civilization
Jonathan Mark Kenoyer, Associate Professor in Anthropology, teaches archaeology and ancient technology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His main focus being the Indus Valley civilization, he has worked in Pakistan and India for the past twenty-three years. Born in India, Dr Kenoyer spent his early years there before leaving for the USA. He has a BA in Anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley and an MA and Ph.D. (1983) in South Asian Archaeology from the same university. He speaks several South Asian languages and is fluent in Urdu, the major language used in Pakistan. He has conducted archaeological research and excavations at both Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, two of the most important early sites in Pakistan. His interest in ancient technologies and crafts has led him to study a broad range of cultural periods in South Asia as well as other regions of the world. Since 1986 he has been the Co-director and Field Director of the Harappa Archaeological Research Project, a long-term study of urban development in the Indus Valley. He is also Guest Curator for the exhibition Great Cities, Small Treasures: The Ancient World of the Indus Valley that will be held at the Asia Society, New York, from 11 February to 3 May 1998 and will subsequently be shown at other venues in the USA.
