Sites used for constructing ancient gold jewellery have been discovered at an archaeological dig in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh.

According to LittleAbout, casts used for production of items made from the precious metal were unearthed during digging at what was once the ancient city of Sirpur. 

Archaeologist Arun Kumar Sharma remarked that the city was a “very famous trade site”. 

“It [was] a public place because a lot of things belonging to [the] public have been found,” he was quoted a saying. 

Granaries for housing grain were also found, with the discoveries believed to data back to the Satvahana age.
