38. Archaeology - a journey into our past

History is not just a series of events. It is about societies, cultures and ideas that have shaped our present. Archaeologists play an important role in this journey of understanding our origins. They make sense of the past to help us build our future.

We talk to archaeologist Dr. Madhavi Kunneriath. Madhavi has an M.A in Ancient Indian History, Culture and Archaeology from Deccan College, Pune., an M.Phil from the Dept of Ancient History and Archaeology at Madras University, and a Ph.D in Quaternary and Prehistory from Paris. She cares about helping people understand how knowing the past can impact the way we think today.
