Mature Harappan Fortified Factory Complex Dispels Peaceful Society Myth

A newly excavated mature Harappan city is the most heavily fortified ever discovered and appears to have been home to a citadel and multiple internal secured compounds including a factory.  This seems to contradict long standing interpretations of Harappan society as a peaceful one that didn't need fortification outside its frontier trading posts.

The ruins were discovered by R. Sahni in 1921 and subsequently investigated by M. S. Vats, M. Wheeler, and G. F. Dales. The settlement occupied an area of more than 260 hectares and consisted of a citadel and the lower city.

I have been looking to find an answer about Fortified Factory but have not seen a situation like this url.
