Historical Information wanted
Can anyone please guide me with the relevant infomation ?
Recently in reading Charles Allen s deeply researched book on Ashoka I came across repeated referances to the strong connection his empire had with the Persian empire and the great influence of Persian and Greco Persian architecture on the stupas and other structures of his time
Some years back I remember reading about a Parsi lady archaeologist conducting a dig at a site in either UP or Bihar and having unearthed very important artifacts etc to establish the fact that the Persian empire did extend right upto this part of India and I would wish to know more about the overall findings of this study
Would it confirm the more than 2000 year old connection between the two civilisations and ofcourse the probable strong nexus between Rigvedic and the Zoroastrian religions ?
Would be grateful to hear from anyone who knows more about this or can identify the lady archaeologist or guide me to further reading on this subject
