1)A copper casting of a human head styled in the manner described for Vashistha was discovered in 1958 in Delhi. This piece has been dated to around 3700 BCE, plus minus 800 years, in three western universities (ETH Zurich, Stanford and UC) using among other methods carbon-14
2)dating tests, spectrographic analysis, X-ray dispersal analysis and metallography. This piece is called "Vashistha head", because the features, hairstyle, tilak and other features of the casting resembles the description for Vashistha in Hindu text.
3)The life size head has a hairstyle that the Vedas describe ad being unique to the family of Vasistha, one of the great seers. The hair is oiled and coiled with a tuft on the right, and their ears are riveted...Carbon -14 tests.. indicate that it was cast around 3,700 B.C.
4)Ref.- Analysis of an Indo-European Vedic Aryan Head - 4500-2500 B.C." JIES 18 ( 1990), p. 425
This piece of artifact predates or at least contemporaneous to Dholavira, Harappans etc of Sindhu-Saraswati valley civilization. However, it is also a most ignored artifact in Indian archeological studies. Such a sorry state of historical narrative.
