Nal style dates range from 3000-1000 BC, people have opinions. It was a popular technique used by several cultures over a wide region of Pakistan.


Humans started building cities, meaning a group of more than one family living in a planned and administered community, in the late neolithic period, about 10,000 years ago, roughly. The earliest known cities of South Asia (India-Pakistan-etc.) were Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, now in Pakistan. We call the culture that built those cities “Indus.” There was no writing, but there was fine pottery, polished and carved stone, and metal work. Lots of it. They were prosperous for many centuries. They didn’t have horses, but they had cattle, and some of them did yoga.
