The Patna circle of the ASI has dug up remnants of brick walls, which officials believe could be at least 2,000 years old, at the site of a pond rejuvenation work in Kumrahar area here.

ASI-Patna circle Superintending Archaeologist Goutami Bhattacharya said the officials discovered the remains of the walls as digging work was underway at Kumrahar where the relics of the Mauryan empire had been found in the past.

It appears that these bricks belong to the Kushan age that ruled over most of the northern Indian subcontinent, Afghanistan, and parts of Central Asia from circa AD 30 to circa 375, but will need a detailed analysis, she said.
