The site was excavated a century ago and has been widely reported. One minute on google would have told you that your Indian find isn't the oldest. I was mistaken about the bronze helmets. There were six, not four; they were found in pit PG 789.

A bit of a side note, but can I say the repoussé and chasing on those Sumerian helmets have always blown my mind... just look at it! (I'm a bit obsessed with the Royal Tombs of Ur. Sorry.)

And dance at raves, all night long!!
'Dance all night at raves'... and in the morning, you feel like you've had your head caved in with a blunt object as a part of some sort of ritualistic death and find yourself covered in cinnabar, laying next to your friends in a stone tomb... no wait... wait... that all went wrong somewhere. Let's start again... :lol:
