Harappan society was not entirely peaceful

The highest rates of injury (15.5%) found in South Asian prehistory
- demonstrated with the human skeletal remains
- paleopathological analysis demonstrated that leprosy & tuberculosis also were present at Harappa
- rates of cranio-facial trauma & infection increased through time
- demonstrating that the civilization collapsed amid illness & injury

Some individuals & communities at Harappa were excluded from access to basic resources - like health & safety
- a basic feature of hierarchical societies world-wide
- as the combined evidence for differences in mortuary treatment & epidemiology indicate
