Mohenjo-Dara and Harappa, India; Mohnjo-Dara and Harappa are ancient Indian cities where swastikas were found on decorative seals in 1931. Brown notes that the swastika is the “first civilized remains”, which are believed to date back to 3,000 B.C. Forms of the swastika from these two sites are more primitive and are more “perfectly developed”(22).
