Talk by Stuart Piggott
'To have recovered two major civilisations of antiquity, virtually or wholly unknown from the written records of the ancient world, is,' says Professor Piggott, 'no bad achievement for archaeology over the past half-century or so.' Reviewing Sir Mortimer Wheeler's supplementary volume to the Cambridge History of India, he talks about one of these recovered civilisations, that of the Indus Valley.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
