Publisher's summary

From the first agricultural settlement more than 7,000 years ago to the Indian campaign of Alexander the Great and the vast Maurya Empire, ancient India tells a story interweaved with captivating legends and cultural legacy.

Find out how the Indus Valley civilization became one of the oldest societies in the history of humankind, and how small agricultural settlements transformed into the urban centers of Harappa and Mohenjo-daro. Dive into the origin story of Buddhism, and follow the path of a privileged young prince who became one of the most famous religious figures.

Learn everything about Ashoka the Great, his grandfather Chandragupta of Maurya, and the greatest empire in the history of India: the Maurya Empire. Our captivating guide about ancient India will take you on a journey through the rich past of the Indian subcontinent, from the beginning of civilization to the fall of the Maurya Empire.

  • How did the people of the Indus Valley and Indo-Gangetic Plain live?
  • What was a day like in the life of a Mauryan?

  • Who was the first king in ancient India, and who was the greatest king of all time?
  • How did the Kuru Kingdom come to be?
