Ask Mr. Donn
Thousands of years ago, a very advanced people, who built planned cities, settled along the Indus River. A thousand years later, a new group, the Aryans, arrived from Central Asia. They told wonderful stories! In the Gupta Empire, the "Golden Age" of ancient India, people had religious freedom and free medical care!
Here are some interactive questions we created about the Indus Valley Civilization, the Aryans and the Vedic Age, the Gupta Empire, and two major world religions - Hinduism and Buddhism - that we believe you might find on a homework assignment, a unit quiz or an exam about ancient India. Test yourself. See if you remember the answer (or guess the answer), then click the "Show Answer" button under each question to see if you are right!
