    Facial reconstruction of Indus Valley people




    A team of 15 scientists and academics from UK, South Korea and some other countries were involved in creating the facial reconstructions of these 2 Indus Valley individuals.

    Which modern population do they most resemble?

    I think genetically they would be closest to native people of Balochistan or Sindh province in Pakistan.

    At first look I would have said Mesopotamians-Syrians.

    But I don't think they have hooked noses

    It is likely that those people where a part of the Sumerian ancestry.

    They had a broad and also long face, flat, narrow forehead. A slim, long, hooked nose. They had broad lips, a large mouth. Brown eyes, brown skin, wavy to curly hair.

    What I can say just now is that they have little in common one to another! I'm not sure all details of reconstruction are reliable, even if I rely on the allover work. Nothing too close to today Baluchis, at first sight.
