5.15 By the light of the western dawn

The History of India Podcast show

Summary: A great battle of the age: the horsemen of the Pratiharas of the east, and the elephants of the Palas of the west. They meet on the shores of the Ganga. In this episode, we spend time with a Pratihara horsemen. We hear the story of his king, we check out his equipment, and hear about his horse. In this episode: the first thesaurus, a cunning nut seller, and a gratuitous rant about military history (sorry).
