The Quest for the Origins of Vedic Culture

An outline is given of some of the archaeological evidence that has received attention in attempting to trace the trans-Asiatic exodus of the Indo-Aryans on their proposed route to India, across central Asia. The first section of the chapter discusses what we are looking for in the archaeological record that might correspond to the speakers of an Indo-European language. The next sections look at this issue from the perspective of the two assumed overland routes of the Indo-Aryans--the northern route and the southern route. The last section discusses the two-wave (or multiple-wave) theory of incursion into India.

Keywords:   archaeological evidence, India, Indo-Aryan origins, trans-Asiatic Indo-Aryan exodus
