Indian Ancient History


Recommended Posts

An interesting site I came across about ancient Indian history. I haven't read the scholars papers but sounds interesting from what I've watched on youtube.

He's a Vedic scholar though ethnically a Greek.

From what I gather he takes a Indo-centric approach to indian pre-history, ie counter argues the Aryan Invasion theory etc.

BTW when he talks of Sapt Sindu, he is on about Panjab! Incase you want any relevance to this site.

Latest research shows that climate change caused the decline of Indus Valley civilisation and Saraswati river!

So it wasn't the 'Aryan Invasion' that caused thier demise!? as western historians always claimed.

What part of 'his story' from the colonial period isn't dubious and heavily motivated????

I read that article, but am intrigued as to why these monsoon floods still happen today and very regularly as well, as to why the Harrappanns upped sticks and fled eastwards so quickly.

From what i gather it amy not have been just the monsoons. I think the drying up of the Saraswati River had the biggest impact. (Though I cant exactly recall if the SR went anywhere near the present Harrapan settlements.)

This is a map of saraswati in shaded, it isnt actually that far off from harrappan settlements, but i dont think its that near enough either to have had too much of an impact on their livelihood.

This is very interesting though.
