The people of Lothal and other Indus Valley sites were pioneering Astronomers and expert metallurgists as well.

      One of the most significant and impressive archaeological achievements of the twentieth century centers around the discovery of the ancient Indus civilization which probably flourished from about to B.C., and extended over a vast territory from the present Pakistan-Iran border to the foot of the Himalayas and to the Gulf of Cambay.   The book brings forward 17 arguments disapproving the Aryan Invasion theory of the Indus Valley Civilization. The book shows a detailed analysis of facts and finishes nicely with a good conclusion. This is a good book for anyone looking up for the ancient history of the Indian Sub-Continent.
