Very good presentation on trade in history.

It's sad that how Bharati hijack any history thread related to land of Indus claiming it's theirs. No you have your holy Ganga Jumna valley, dig its history instead of stealing history of Sindhi, Punjabi, Baloch, Pashtuns, Sareki, Gilgati, Hazara, Hindko, Chitrali, Kailash etc who are owner of these lands for thousands of years.
A video on Prithviraj Chauhan and Muslim invasion of India..
A one-armed Indian youth? What use are you going to get out of that. I don't think the Romans were boy lovers like the Greeks. I could be wrong.
A gift of a one armed himilayan youth 10:48 . What even is that?😂
OWING TO CLIMATE WHEN THE INDIANS DRINK WINE THEY QUICKLY BECOME DRUNK AND BEHAVE TWICE AS MAD AS ANY GREEK OR ROMAN" LMAO😂😆

Isnt this essentially modern Chinese one belt one road? looks like China is trying to linkup with Africa, South Asia, and Europe again
3:41 This king Gondopherres or Vindhya Parna was the first Indian king who got converted to Christianity by Saint Thomas in 1 century CE.
It seems like the Romans are great friends and trading partners at a distance. In close proximity, they tend to fuck you up and take your stuff.
Chai ke chakkr me
Pigs destroyed these books of records in Nalanda University. And other universities

A ONE ARMED INDIAN YOUTH???
You sound like Malcolm McDowell ate a mini mushroom
Ancient trade without mentioning slaves?

Acknowledging that people whose ancestors didn't drink alcohol regularly can't handle as much alcohol as those whose ancestors did is considered racism now though…
The yoga founder Sage Patanjali a scholar in then ujjain Kingdom mentioned about Yuvan ( Greeks ) in 200 BC.
"Gara" sounds a lot like garðr or "gard", norse name for city…
Imagine being gifted a one armed indian teenager…
This history occurred in modern day Pakistan not india i dont know why its reffered to as india thats incorrect. Most theses empires were based in what is modern day Pakistan.
1 Armed Indian Youth? What kind of gift is that? Made me Chuckle.
P.S. I really love the content you guys Produce, it fascinates me just how well travelled and enterprising the ancients were.
How is this video so good? Incredible
Lol either your map is wrong or your info as Sakas never advanced beyond westen India so Ujjain which is visibly an eastern indian city was never under Sakas.
Indo parthian is wrong name parthian is iranian tribe
the one armed indian what now? @10:47
Indian steel gold and silver are pure and standard compared to other empires.
would love to see more content like this! great work!
Sri Lanka which is on the southern tip of India was providing Ivory, Elephants, Gems & many more exotic goods. I believe the trade was done through Indian intermediaries who spread a rumor that Sri Lanka was inhabited by a deadly clan who were evil. On the contrary the indigenous clans were rather literate & sophisticated , prosperous nations. They even had an emissary in the Roman royal court. History has largely focused on the popular segments ignoring certain areas though !!!
Indians smoked weed!
Deleted for being a foolish question the more I look at & think about it !
The Mediterranean route was an insurmountable mount & a vast chasm for any European power to ever take the Mediterranean Sea to the coast without the sues canal …
But then again…
If they sent shipwrights ….
Idk nm … it was impossible
Please do ANCIENT GREECE , & BYZANTIUM Please !!! ¡¡¡ !!!
