Surkotada is an archeological site located in India and it is a site belonging to Indus Valley Civilisation(IVC). It is a smaller fortified IVC site with 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres) in area. Surkotada site contains horse remains dated to ca. 2000 BCE, which is considered a significant observation with respect to Indus Valley Civilisation. Sándor Bökönyi (1997), on examining the bone samples found at Surkotada, opined that at least six samples probably belonged to true horse. During 1974, Archeological Survey of India undertook excavation in this site and J.P.Joshi and A.K.Sharma reported findings of horse bones at all levels (cicra 2100-1700 BCE).
