2 - Connecting Indian Trans-Himalaya and Tibet in Proto-historic Period- An Archaeological Perspective

Friday, July 6
10:20 AM - 11:50 AM
Location: Silveroak I, Ground Floor

 Narratives of trade and cultural relation between Tibet and Indian -Trans-Himalaya are well documented in historical scholarship. However, no work has been done to explore contours of such relationship in the prehistoric or protohistoric period in the cold desert region of India and Tibet. The present paper based on the results of recent archaeological investigations in Indian trans -Himalayan region and new absolute C14 and OSL dates pushes the antiquity and complexity of the relationship in wider trans -Himalayan -Tibet region to the middle of the first millennium BCE or beyond it. Based on this work it is possible to say now that the region of Tibet and the larger Trans Himalayan landscape formed a big cultural mosaic during the prehistoric and proto-historic period in which the communities who adopted typical practices of disposal of dead in caves or cist were well networked and connected through trade and technology transfers. This paper in this panel would explore the ancient landscape and human interaction in Tibet and Trans-Himalaya
