India

Approximately 1 in 5 humans today live in South Asia (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal). This population boasts a high diversity of cultural traditions and one of the longest and richest archaeological records of modern humans outside Africa. South Asia was home of the one of the world’s early Bronze Age civilizations, in the Indus Valley, and the homeland of two of the great world religions (Hinduism and Buddhism). These legacies have left a rich archaeological record from prehistoric settlements through to early historic monuments. Current Institute staff research in this region includes the study of past subsistence systems, the beginnings of agriculture, cultural response to climatic changes, primary and secondary urbanization, trade, and the archaeology of landscapes, both sacred and profane.
