But the acculturation scenario assumes that the Indo-Aryans were integrated into the local post-Harappan cultures. They contributed their own elements (including technological innovations connected with the use of horses as draught animals), but also adopted the local traditions. Mughal's argument excludes an abrupt shift, with one population (and its material culture) driving out or destroying another, but is compatible with acculturation.
