Weds 7.30pm to 9.30pm in Ashover Parish Hall

11 weeks from 18th Sept - Lecturer: Gary Slator

We will look at the earliest roots of Indian society, via the archaeological evidence for what is now called "The Indus Valley Civilization" – one of the oldest and most prosperous of all ancient Bronze Age civilizations. We will then look at reasons for its downfall, and how Indian society was transformed by the arrival of new peoples and culture, creating a new kind of civilization that provided the roots for the state of India we recognise today.
