“An exuberant, plush and poetic geography-biography.”
Acclaimed writer and historian, Michael Wood’s ‘ten thousand year epic’ incovers the fabulous sights, sounds and dazzling achievements of the world’s oldest and most influential civilization.
In this captivating six-part adventure, Wood chronicles the history of the subcontinent, the incredible richness and diversity of its peoples, cultures and landscapes, the intense drama of its past and the originality and continuing relevance of its ideas.
From the deserts of Turkmenistan to the Khyber Pass and the plains of Pakistan, from the Himalayas to the palm-fringed shores of Kerala; Wood discovers a land whose past is almost unimaginably rich and brings to life some of the most momentous and moving events in world history.
