Winter 2010
Video Presentation
Indus : the Unvoiced Civilization
Discussion led by Nalini Gopinath and Richard Meadow

Video Synposis: Shrouded in mystery, the details of the Indus Valley civilization are slowly being extracted from the archaeological record. In this program, Richard Meadow, of Harvard University; R. S. Bisht, of the Archaeological Survey of India; linguist Asko H. S. Parpola; and other experts investigate the language, customs, and beliefs of the inhabitants of Mohenjo-daro, Harappa, Dholavira, and Kalibangan. Satellite photos, maps, relics, and an extraordinary 3-D computer re-creation of Dholavira and its water management system shed light on topics including the enigmatic Sarasvati Riiver and Indus Valley links to Bahrain and faraway Mesopotamia.
