2000-YEAR-OLD TEXTS OF GHANDARA  --  The oldest surviving Buddhist texts, preserved on long rolls of birch-tree bark, written in long extinct Gandhari are from Northwestern Pakistan.  They provide insights into a literary tradition thought to have been irretrievably lost, and help researchers to reconstruct crucial phases in the development of Buddhism in India and confirm the vital role played by the Gandhara region in the spread of Buddhism into Central Asia and China.

The Sphinx is generally accepted to have been built along with the Pyramids of Giza around 2500 BC. But, the Sphinx today has a vertical weathering profile in the limestone trench surrounding it. This erosion, according to geology, could only be the result of prolonged rainfall, in contrast to the dry weather experienced in Egypt since 2500 BC. Based on the climatic evidence, a geologist at Boston University, estimated it between 9,000 to 12,000 years old, when climate was wetter

The Skeleton Lake of Roopkund, India | Atlas Obscura In 1942 a British forest guard in Roopkund, India made an alarming discovery. Some 16,000 feet above sea level, at the bottom of a small valley, was a frozen lake absolutely full of 1200 year old skeletons. That summer, the ice melting revealed even more skeletal remains, floating in the water and lying haphazardly around the lake's edges. The cause? Stranger than you'd think.
