Scientists claim to have found language of ancient Indus civilisation
"If it's real writing, we have a chance to know their language and to get to know more about their religion and other aspects of their culture."

Elaborate symbols drawn on to amulets and tablets by an ancient civilisation belong to an unknown language, according to a new analysis by researchers.
The controversial claim raises the prospect of deciphering the written words of one of the most mysterious civilisations known, and so opening a window onto the ancient culture.
