Abstract At the time of the fall of the Roman Empire in the West and the Dark Ages that followed, India experienced a series of great flowerings of culture, both in the north and the south. In this program, Michael Wood shows viewers some of the amazing achievements of India during this time. Breakthroughs in astronomy and mathematics, mastery of wrought iron and bronze technologies, island conquests throughout the region, and the codification of sexual practices into the Kama Sutra are spotlighted.
