NFL: Ancient Indian Map, Ancient Pottery, An Ancient Peak Winery wineries win in India
Ancient pottery from ancient India was found at the ruins of a Roman settlement in India.
A map from the Roman period showed an ancient Indian settlement in the country’s western Himalayan region, the Associated Press reported.
The map was dated to the 3rd century A.D. and depicts a city called Vadodara.
The ruins of the Roman town of Vadodo are in western Ladakh, about 200 kilometers (125 miles) east of the border with China.
The town was built by the Romans as a trading hub, and is known for its famous amphitheater.
The Roman name Vadoda is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “fire.”
The map also showed a river called Daula in the vicinity.
