INDIAN CIVILIZATION, AN INDIGENOUS DEVELOPMENT
When Wheeler speaks of "the Aryan invasion of the Land of the Seven Rivers, the Punjab," he has no warranty at all, so far as I can see. If one checks the dozen references in the Rig Veda to the Seven Rivers, there is nothing in them that to me implies an invasion: the land of the Seven Rivers is the land of the Rig Veda, the scene of 
action.(*47)

Despite Wheeler's comments, it is difficult to see what is particularly non-Aryan about the Indus Valley civilization.(*48) 

Renfrew suggests that the Indus Valley civilization was in fact Indo-Aryan:
