Here are my observations about 2500 years old Chandraketugarh Bengal India Woman were housemakers, dancers, musicians, mahout, warriors, horse riders, farmers Man mainly did outside jobs such as fighting, farming. Man were clean shaved #Archaeology #chandraketugarh

 

Tabla & dholak & trumpet were only played by woman. She also played other musical instruments otherwise played by man. Majority of deities were female. Two exception were found so far. Man and woman remained upper bare while ‘Native Genda Phool’ was majorly used

 

They had moulds to mass produce Terracotta figurines. Intricate art on wet soil is not possible by hands Necklace size of youg woman was round neck, married woman wore dangling necklaces Bindi was worn by both married and unmarried women

 

People were sea farer. Woman and man took active part in all form of activities such as war, riding. Woman drove vehicles of kings ‘a strategic position ‘
