A New Mystery -Ancient Terracotta Blocks 

May 23, 2018 1 min read

Seen in one of the important trading hubs of the old Silk Route – and retrieved with difficulty from the back of  a dealer’s dusty shelf, lying in a plastic packet as a neglected group, these little ancient blocks from the Indus Valley Civilisation were originally intended for a museum but life events came in the way and were relegated to a forgotten corner.

Each end of the double-sided block has a unique motif representing a leaf or flower.

They size of the imprint varies from a few mm to 4 cm. What could such tiny blocks be used for?
