dc.description1. Archaeological faunal bone phosphate stable oxygen isotope (δ18O) data : These data derive from bone phosphate samples taken from multiple faunal taxa excavated from five rural Indus Civlisation settlements: Masudpur I, Masudpur VII, Burj and Dabli-vas-Chugta and Alamgirpur. Faunal taxa include Bos indicus, Bubalus bubalis, Ovis aries and Capra hircus. The age of samples ranges from Early Harappan (ca 2800-2600 cal BC) to Early Historic (ca 500 cal BC - 100 AD). 2. Archaeological faunal tooth enamel stable oxygen isotope (δ18O) and stable carbon isotope (δ13C) data: These data derive from tooth enamel carbonate samples taken from multiple faunal taxa excavated from five rural Indus Civlisation settlements: Masudpur I, Masudpur VII, Burj and Dabli-vas-Chugta and Alamgirpur. Faunal taxa include Bos indicus, Bubalus bubalis, Ovis aries, Capra hircus, Antilope cervicapra, Bos gaurus and Bosephalus tragocamelus. The age of samples ranges from Early Harappan (ca 2800-2600 cal BC) to Early Historic (ca 500 cal BC - 100 AD). The data-set includes both bulk and intra-tooth samples. 3. Archaeological plant carbon stable oxygen isotope data δ13C: These data derive from charred crop remains excavated from several Indus Civlisation settlements: Masudpur I, Masudpur VII, Burj, Dabli-vas-Chugta,Tigrana, Mitathal and Harappa. Crop taxa include: Hordeum vulgare, Triticum aestivum, Vigna radiata, Vigna mungo, Macrotyloma uniflorum, Oryza sativa and Ziziphus mauritiana. Both raw δ13C and converted Δ13C data are available. The age of samples ranges from Early Harappan (ca 2800-2600 cal BC) to Early Historic (ca 500 cal BC - 100 AD). 4. Modern barley carbon stable oxygen isotope (δ13C) data: These data derive from modern barley (Hordeum vulgare) samples collected along a rainfall gradient of 200-1000 mm/year in north-western India (Haryana/Rajasthan/Punjab). The samples were collected with the aim of characterising the relationship between water availability and δ13C in this taxon in this region. The data-set also includes data on soils, irrigation regime, water-logging and salinity. 5. Modern Ziziphus carbon stable oxygen isotope (δ13C) data: These data derive from modern Ziziphus mauritiana and Ziziphus nummularia samples collected along a rainfall gradient of 200-1000 mm/year in north-western India (Haryana/Rajasthan/Punjab). The samples were collected with the aim of characterising the relationship between water availability and δ13C in these taxa in this region. The data-set also includes data on soils, irrigation regime and variety.en
