Dry and built upon Still the Saraswati River was presumed to have been mythological because the proof of its existence was muddled up with traditional stories and all geological evidence was buried beyond the reach of scientists until todayToday satellite imagery confirms that the River Saraswati did exist and substantiates many of its hydrological properties that were recorded in the old texts Scientists are now sifting through the old archeological material religious texts and olk stories and separating the errors The Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine from the truths the erratumsrom the political plugs the nonsense Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine from the non science the non sciencerom the science in general challenging some previously divined truths and also crediting some previously dismissed views This book is a comprehensive compendium of the search Six for the lost and the research of theound River Saraswati and the civilizations that lived along it It is presented thoroughly than any other book has done thus ar or laypeople Except its dryness rivals the River Saraswati as it is today I still waded through the book s slough imagining the river s once awe inspiring stature because it was written conscientiously and with untiring diligence I read only recently that among other things the purpose of science is also to come up with uestions that have never been asked before This books shares some new uestions that archeologists have only just begun to ask and that says a lot about how ar we have come with exploring the River Saraswati and how many uestions there are to ask and with some luck answer In archeology guided speculation is an important component of discovery I hope the next edition of this book includes many well designed maps and colorful images integrated into the text to help readers unfamiliar with the geography of the area string along with the author better The author shares a lot of detail on the past and present work by archeologists to ind and excavate Indus Saraswati sites But I would have liked to see the places alongside the 1500 kms of River Saraswati come to life in a vivid way by tying archeology to anthropology and the civilization to the river I would have also liked to see story telling and scientific political and social contexts of the current archeological investigations Because this book is dry I recommend that the reader read the last two chapters that is Part 3 Section 11 The Saraswati s Testimony and the Epilogue Saraswati Turns Invisible before diving into the book That way you kind of jump into the pool knowing how deep the water is This book would make a A Texas Rangers Family (The Stone Family fantastic documentaryilm A very well researched book that draws Racialization, Crime, and Criminal Justice in Canada from differentields Computers from archeology hydrography history DNA analysis soil and climate analysis as well as Local legends to trace the history of the Saraswati river and establish that the Indian civilization has been a continuous and living civilizationor over 9000 years The narrative though is not at all a drab technical book but rather exicting An enjoyable read.
