I agree - to an extent . But look at the arrows , they seem to radiate OUT FROM Ur. Does this suggest Ur regulated / initiated the trading ( ie. they had the tech , boats, etc . ) ?The map does not show any route between Seistan/Mekran/Gedrosia/Ariana etc. (over Suleiman and Kirthar Mountains). I think that is wrong
I think there would have been a connection, as you say below, but I need to find out more . The book cited above on the ancient silk route is probably my next read .
Yes, possibly the Iranian influence, but I am wondering about 'Mesopotamian influence ' and if it came direct by sea ?. That was the region inhabited by Aryans and they were routinely cross-crossing it to and from India. That is the way, Mesopotamian and Iranian influence might have come into India before (Mehrgarh)/during and after IVC.
yes, that is right - remember how in other thread (some time back) I was saying how central Asia civilisation developed (in south CE) before IE ingress ? That civilisation changed that particular ingress of IE .BTW, Anau and Jeitun people were not Indo-Europeans. Indo-Europeans did not move east till much later.
