thief-in-the-dark disse: I'm doing research on medieval India; I've already looked through your "India" tag, but I was wondering if you knew of any places where I could find more information. Thank you!
Well, your first problem is that this is a blog about Europe, so you probably want to look for books, articles, or artwork that’s from India.
Your second problem is, you haven’t specified why you’re doing the research/to what purpose, so it’s hard to say what resources would be useful to you even if you HAD asked a source who deals with India specifically rather than Europe.
India is big. Medieval India was never actually India, it was a lot of different states. The closest relevant time that it came to being conquered by one empire was in the 1690s, which are not medieval.
^ Yep. Thank you for taking second (and third) problem, it’s a bit of a busy morning for me.
It’s actually for a book I’m working on, and I had absolutely no clue where to get background information. I’m sorry about the confusion, but thank you for helping me with this even though it’s outside your guys’ specialty. I really appreciate it.
You’re welcome! It’s just difficult to come up with links or books without specific topics, time periods, or facets of culture like political intrigue, agriculture, or the arts, but those should get you started in whatever direction you’re going with it. Good luck. And if anyone wants to add info, feel free to in the notes.
