The surface survey in particular, is most significant method for the visual examination of the landscape, settlement locations, distribution of artifacts on the surface and changes of settlement pattern at regional level By examining the surface material and geophysical features, archaeologists can improve their knowledge for a better understanding about the past. The present paper is specifically focused on a systematic surface survey of the “Ganweriwala” site which is regarded as the fifth large urban center of the Indus Valley culture This type of survey leads to the visual inspection of cultural material on the surface and documentation of a site through topographical study.
