A province in the south Asian country of Pakistan, Sindh has long been the centre of legends where seafaring merchants charted courses to the remotest lands and villagers sold spices, the birth-place of a civilisation that rivalled those of Egypt and Mesopotamia. Throughout this book, we will explore what is known of the past of this magnificent land and its people. With the discovery of flint stones scattered throughout the region, it is believed that earliest hominid habitation dates as far back as the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic era.
