The history of Balochistan began in BCE with vague allusions to the region in Greek historical records. Balochistan is divided between the Pakistani province of Balochistanthe Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan and the Afghan region of Balochistan. Prehistoric Balochistan dates to the Paleolithic. The earliest evidence of human occupation in what is now Balochistan is dated to the Paleolithic era, represented by hunting camps, chipped and flaked stone tools.
The earliest settled villages in the region date to the ceramic Neolithic c. These villages expanded in size during the subsequent Chalcolithic, when interaction increased. This involved the movement of finished goods and raw materials, including chank shelllapis lazuliturquoiseand ceramics. By the Bronze Age in BCE, Pakistani Balochistan had become part of the Harappan cultural orbit, providing key resources to the expansive settlements of the Indus river basin to the east.
Pakistani Balochistan marked the westernmost extent of the Indus Valley civilisation. The Periplus of the Erythraean Sea in the 1st century described the territory of the Paradon beyond the Ommanitic region on the coast of modern Baluchistan. The invasions of Genghis Khan into Bampoor caused the bulk of Baloch migrations and the Balochs were given refuge in the greater Sindh region. In an effort to gain total control of the regions, the British named the area Balochistan and got the support of the Baloch Sardars who then were titled Nawabs.
These Nawabs were to keep minor Baloch, Pathan and other factions in check. For the last years the region has seen continual fighting to gain access to natural resources in an otherwise barren land. Iranian Balochistan had some of the earliest human civilizations in history.
All of what is now Baluchistan was incorporated in the AchaemenidSeleucidParthianand Sassanid empires. There were five major kings in the 2nd century; Yolamira, son of Bagavera, Arjuna, son of Yolamira, Hvaramira, another son of Yolamira, Mirahvara, son of Hvaramira, and Miratakhma, another son of Hvaramira.
Arab forces invaded Balochistan in the 7th century, converting the Baloch people to Islam. In the 17th century, Baluchistan was dominated by Ahmedzai Baloch tribe of Kalat region, which ruled Balochistan from
