Story of India in British Museum

The British Museum’s website on Ancient India is divided in six chapters: The Buddha, Geography, Early Hinduism, Indus Valley, Time, and Writings.For each chapter there is a ‘Doormat’ page, which is an atmospheric introductory page that leads to the chapter homepage. Within each chapter, find the Story, a presentation of information in a narrative form; Explore, a non-linear presentation of information; and Challenge, an activity that allows students to practice certain skills (historical, analytical, mathematical, observational) within the context of a theme or topic relevant to ancient India.
