A prehistoric site in the Quetta valley of West Pakistan which was occupied during the 3rd millennium bc. The population of this period lived in well-built mud-brick houses consisting of several small rooms, used tools of copper, and had wheel-turned pottery painted in black designs on a buff or greenish ground known as Quetta ware. In Period III there was an interesting structure on the highest part of the mound: it was built on a brick platform and had thick spur walls leading to the lower parts of the mound. This building may have had some special function, as eight female figurines were found in its vicinity and underneath the main wall was a stone-built hollow containing a human skull.
