Burzahom (India)


Definition: The site of Burzahom is a Neolithic settlement and cemetery in the Kashmir state of India, occupied between about 3000-1500 BC. The earliest houses at the site were semisubterranean pithouses (that is, partially excavated into the ground). After 2000 BC, the residences were all above-ground mud-brick residences.
