This chapter looks beyond the Harappan distribution zone and studies sites in the mountains in the north, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Deccan, and eastern India. The purpose is to build up columns of archaeological sequence and show how these relate and lead to the foundations of early historic India. The chapter starts with the complexities of the beginning of food production and emergence of village-farming communities in non-Harappan India. It also discusses Ochre Coloured Pottery and copper hoards.

Keywords:   Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Deccan, eastern India, archaeological sequence, food production, village-farming communities, Ochre Coloured Pottery, copper hoards
