Corpus of Indus Seals and Inscriptions (CISI) has as its purpose to make available for research, in as good photographs as possible, all available seals and inscriptions relating to the Indus Civilization, including its Early Harappan and Late Harappan phases of development. This material is fundamental for the research of the poorly understood script, language, and religion of the Indus Civilization, and a major outlet for its art. The seals and other types of inscribed artefacts are also important for the study of the Harappan social, political and economic organization, including administrative practices, external cultural contacts, internal trade and various techniques, such as seal carving. The Indus Civilization flourished in Pakistan and Northwestern India, and its Mature phase is dated to 2600–1900 BCE.
