Francesco Brighenti

Over and above its intrinsic value to netizens, this web-directory is intended to complement and serve as a ‘bibliographic’ resource for the ongoing discussions at the following forums on ethnogenesis in ancient India (before 600 B.C.) and in other contemporaneous civilizations: Abhinavagupta, Indo-Eurasian, Indo-Greek, Akandabaratam, etc. Posts in the Abhinavagupta archives are not reproduced here but may be easily accessed by scanning the corresponding (sub) categories (listed under the Topics below) at its Forum-Index. Please send any relevant materials and/or links, whether your own or of others, and any other feedback directly to Francesco for consideration.
