Ancient Indian Archaeological Discovery

The site of an ancient civilization has been excavated in Sirpur in central India. Six well constructed granaries and various stone and bronze statues, bracelets, casts have been excavated which were used for making gold and silver jewelry.

Sirpur is said to have been an important trade center from which various goods were sent to parts of India and Arab countries. It was also known for iron statues. The goods from here were sent to the southern Indian state of Karnataka, western Gujarat, and eastern Cuttack, to name a few.

The archaeologists hope to find more granaries since only one fourth of the site has been excavated so far.
