Abstract

The Archaeological research on Indus civilization has greater inclination towards the scientific approach to understand the substance deeply. The lapidary, metals, bones, flora and several other stuffs are given great concentration.

In present paper the focus is placed on resource obtaining material for lapidary and two types of stone samples i.e. steatite and vesuvianite are analyzed through Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA), to comprehend best result about their origin and behavior of interaction networks.
