Archaeology, History, and Heritage in South Asia
Any chance of a brief comment on the most interesting aspects of new research and the conference? I was hoping to go, but couldnt make it.
Hi Teach Indus, Sorry you couldn't make it! I'm afraid I couldn't really do that- in terms of academic etiquette it would amount to publishing someone's research before they did! I can direct you to some project websites, and once the papers are published in either magazines or articles I'll do a separate post on them. The Cambridge project linked to below is my own. There was a lot of research presented, on Kadibakele, Harappa, Haryana, Gujarat and other sites and regions! http://www.recercaenaccio.cat/agaur_reac/AppJava/en/projecte/20111109-expedition-to-no.jsphttp://www.arch.cam.ac.uk/rivers/Hope this helps for now!
No intention at all of asking you to breach academic etiquette. Perhaps it wasn't clear that I was only asking for general comment, such as in a newspaper report. There don't seem to be any that I could find. Perhaps they were in French. Thanks for the link to the Cambridge research project. Hopefully the research will illuminate the debate about the end of the IVC, which was discussed most interestingly in 'The End of the Great Harappan Tradition' If you're interested in the materials we produce for UK schools visit Teach Indus for UK Primary Teachers. I'm currently writing up an article for Primary History Journal about an Enquiry Project in a couple of schools and will keep you posted.
Absolutely- there has been some media coverage and I'll do an update post on that, linking to the articles as soon as I can! Please do keep me posted on your work; it would be great to know more about it.
