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 expeditions which he undertook in areas including the Dard River, the Upper Gilgit Valley, Baltistan, the Tarim Basin, Tangir and Darel. This study examines the landmarks, the artefacts and the inscriptions of the locations in which excavations were carried out.
