About the event

The Indian landscape is scattered with Megaliths of various designs. Some are associated with ancient human remains and some have been woven into local Indian folklore. But all of them were very confusing to the Victorian British archaeologists who rediscovered them and tried to explain them. So how did the druids fit into these explanations? How did this staple of British prehistory end up thousands of miles from home, building megaliths in the Indian sun?

Charlotte Coull is an independent scholar and public historian with a PhD from the University of Manchester. Her thesis examined the agency of stone in the development of British archaeological practice in India and Egypt and her research interests include materiality, environmental history, colonial knowledge creation and public engagement.
