Amri culture is attributed to Amri archaeological sites in Sindh and Balochistan provinces of Pakistan. The typesite is Amri, Sindh.

At least 160 settlements attributed to the Amri Culture have been discovered, mainly in Balochistan, but also in lower Sindh. They are often distributed along the terraces of old and active river courses and consist of sites of different size and shape, which are sometimes stratified below settlements of later periods. Among these, that of the Tharro Hills, near the town of Gujo, is one of the most famous of lower Sindh.
