Walking between the different sites and findings of Mehrauli, we came across a junk yard. Hundreds of stones that must be the rubble of restoration work lying just outside the Qutub Minar complex in piles.
Even the cement mixer looks ancient.
Metcalfe could have used this stuff in his artificial ancient ruins.
I'd like some for my own decorating. If it wasn't so heavy, I would have stuck one in my bag and taken it home.
