Archaeology on the move

A travelling exhibition, Realise India, that aims to inculcate patriotism in students by educating them on India's ancient civilisation is currently underway.
The expo features 40 exhibits, mostly photographs, of various archaeological treasures unearthed during excavations in Taxila, Dwaraka, Arikkamedu, Adhichanallur, Mohenjadaro and Harappa. "Indian ivory statues unearthed during excavations at Pompeii in Rome show the strength of ancient trade links between the two countries," T.K.V Rajan, founder-director of Indian Science Monitor said.

More in the Hindu report.
