Early Indians: The Story of Our Ancestors and Where We Came From

To tell us the story of our ancestors, author and journalist, Tony Joseph uses DNA evidence to trace the large migrations of modern humans into India – of agriculturists from Iran between 7000 BCE and 3000 BCE and pastoralists from the Central Asian Steppe between 2000 BCE and 1000 BCE. In his book, Early Indians: The Story of Our Ancestors and Where We Came From, Joseph takes head-on some of the most controversial and uncomfortable questions of Indian history: Who were the Harappans? Did the ‘Aryans’ really migrate to India? Are Scheduled Tribes genetically distinct from the rest of the population?
