    Arrow Video on the origins of the Indo-Europeans in India

    Here is a nice video (2 parts) introducing the Indo-European migrations to India and the Rig Veda (oldest sacred texts of Hinduism, composed from 1500 to 1000 BCE based on old Indo-European values and beliefs from the steppes). The video complements my short history of Indo-Iranian migrations. You can see European traits in some people in northern Pakistan (more obvious than in India). Northern Pakistan has the highest percentage of European DNA in the Indian subcontinent.

    While watching it I stumbled upon an audio presentation of the David Anthony's book
    The Horse, The Wheel and Language (it runs for one hour in 6 episodes !).

    iTunes has an audio only version of a book by Michael Woods, who is the narrator in these videos. It is entitled "The Story of India".

    This book appears to be the basis of the BBC show from which the two Indo-European parts were taken.

    It is 9 hours in length and costs 26 USD. Its a good listen in the car.
