Fascinating stuff - 1

Read a fascinating article in the BBC last week...

Peru link to Indian archaeological find?
Geologists have discovered a striking archaeological feature on a hillock in the Kutch district of the western Indian state of Gujarat. This feature is shaped like the Roman numeral VI. Each arm of this feature is a trench that is about two metres wide, two metres deep and more than 100 metres long. The feature has evoked the curiosity of archaeologists because such signs have mostly been observed so far in Peru. .... The Kutch region is host to several archaeological findings belonging to the Harappan civilisation (3000-1500 BC). This has led to the speculation that this feature could be related to the Harappan civilisation.
