Finding Forgotten Cities


Price: Rp812 500


Synopsis
In the autumn of 1924, the scholar-archaeologist John Marshall made an announcement that rewrote the history books: he proclaimed the discovery of the civilization of the Indus valley. Within weeks, Marshall's discovery was recognized as on the same scale as the unearthing of Troy and of Crete. Spanning nearly a century, "Finding Forgotten Cities" tells the full story of Marshall's discovery for the first time. The Indus discovery was the work of many individuals: the collector-traveller Charles Masson, who first described Harappa; Alexander Cunningham, the archaeological pioneer and Harappa's first excavator; Daya Ram Sahni, Rakhaldas Banerji, and Madho Sarup Vats, the discerning diggers who uncovered Harappa and Mohenjodaro; Luigi Pio Tessitori, the Italian linguist-turned-explorer who unearthed Kalibangan but never lived to tell the tale of his exploits; government officials of all kinds who, as self-taught archaeologists, stumbled upon significant clues; and, presiding over the whole process, John Marshall, a Cambridge classicist brought by Lord Curzon to India as Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, the man who finally pieced into place the tantalising jigsaw of data on the long-forgotten Indus civilization. Based on previously unknown archival materials, "Finding Forgotten Cities' presents a powerful narrative history of how one of the key sites of ancient civilisation was unexpectedly unearthed.
