KINGS AND EMPIRES
They speak of a region are
equivalent to the region of Europe from the Baltic to the Mediterranean
seas and from Spain to Poland.
These passages were ignored by nineteenth century scholars
dominated by the invasion theory, who stated that the Vedas show no
evidence of large empires in India. The main reason again was the
so-called absence of archeological data. However, the Harappan
culture, which now has sites in most of these regions mentioned in the
Brahmanas should cause us to take these references seriously. Were
these figures great kings or emperors of the Harappan
(Sarasvati) culture? Surely such a large culture would have maintained
some memory of its great kings.
