Beyond the Gorges of the Indus: Archaeology Before Excavation
Beyond the Gorges of the Indus is the archaeological history of what is now known as the Trans-Himalayan Zone. Karl Jettmar has based his book on the numerous expeditions which he undertook in the area. The meanings of the landmarks, the artefacts and the inscriptions are based in detail. TheDard River, the Upper Gilgit Valley, Baltistan, the Tarim Basin, Tangir and Darel are some of the locations in which excavations were carried out. The book gives an insight into the solutions confirmed by the discovery of the petroglyphs in the Indus Valley, near Chilas with 30,000 images, and morethan 4,000 inscriptions.
