ABOUT THIS BOOK

Lectures on the Ancient History of India by D.R. Bhandarkar is a collection of
three lectures focusing on the history of India from 650 BC till 325 BC. Starting
with the Aryan colonization of India and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), Bhandarkar
takes us on a journey through the political, administrative and social structures of
this period.
Much remains a mystery of the ancient Indian land before the classical
civilizations of the Mauryan and Gupta empires emerged. Lectures on the Ancient
History of India discusses the culture, practices, sciences and arts of society during
that time, revealing a country that was far more advanced in relation with the rest
of the world.
