Vedic Sanskrit is an Old Indo-Aryan language (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Indo-Aryan_language). It is the spoken ancestor of liturgical Sanskrit (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanskrit), and an early descendant of Proto-Indo-Iranian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-Iranian). It is closely related to Avestan (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avestan_language), the oldest preserved Iranian language (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_language). Vedic Sanskrit is the oldest attested language of the Indo-Iranian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-Iranian_language_family) branch of the Indo-European family (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-European_languages).

I can't post links, but the Yale University series on the early Middle Ages is fantastic and available on YouTube for free. It's a whole semester's worth of material.
