I can't find any cites in Google Books to the journal "The IUP Journal of History and Culture" and no cites in Google books or Google scholar to the author and IP above, Sujay Rao Mandavilli. This looks a bit promotional, certainly not something we should be using in the article. Dougweller (talk) 12:32, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I removed the content from the article. I don't know if it is nonsense or not, but this source is no good. Hopefully, somebody can dig into the sources and unearth accurate information. - Kautilya3 (talk) 08:42, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Here is a link to the Times of India article. It is known that the Indians had been experimenting with iron for centuries before the onset of the Iron Age. But Iron Age means the period when iron came into widespread use and started supplanting all the other bronze/copper implements. The date of that is determined by historians studying all the available evidence, not isolated archaeological finds or newspaper headlines. - Kautilya3 (talk) 12:49, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
It's a very interesting discovery and we should certainly cite it once it is actually published, but the reporting is terrible. Megalophias (talk) 02:33, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
