Original Message:   Many of the beads found in the digs are Carnelian from the Indus Valley Era
Hi Judy,

As I am sure you know some of the other beads found in the same digs have been carbon dated to the aforementioned time frame. Most of the old carnelian beads are from India. Several years ago the tiny clay "tomb" beads were dated to 1200-1500. With that said, you state a good point but I have always associated these stone beads with the Sub-Saharan Trade Routes.
