Electron microscope analysis of ancient Indus Valley finds

Scanning Electron Microscope analysis of the incising marks on the steatite tablets indicates the use of three different specialized bronze graving tools (see 58). Each tablet was first shaped from raw unfired steatite and then incised with the
