Amri or Aamri is an archaeological site dating back to 3600 BC with the remains of a pre-Harappan fortified town. The site is located south of Mohenjo-daro on Hyderabad-Dadu Road about 110 km north of Hyderabad, and 60 km (50 min drive) east of Nawabshah. This site has multi-level occupation, although it was never a big city.
Seemingly little more than a mound made of generations of mud houses built on top of one another, Amri is in fact an important prehistoric site (20 km north of the Sann crossroads). Glazed and molded pottery from the Mughal period were found at the upper level, below which were pieces from the late and mature level of Harappan occupation. At the lowest level was found pottery that showed no affinity with Harappa or Moenjo Daro and has been named Amri-ware. The most importantpieces are exhibited at the National Museum in Karachi.
