ABOUT THE BOOK
A researcher explains what happened to the culture and language of the Indus Valley Civilization after it started disintegrating around 1900 BCE – Tony Joseph
This book aims to place new evidence about the Dravidian affiliation with the language of the Indus people and positions the ancient Sangam Tamilcorpus as a proto-document that is relevant for understanding Tamilpre-history which had probable connections to the Indus Civilization.
Using technological tools such as Geographic Information System (GIS), the author has analyzed what he calls the journey of a Civilization’ and argues that place-names are reliable markers to track ancient migrations.
