X1533: Oh the HumaniTEA! in Splash Spring 2016 (Apr. 30, 2016)

H1438: The Delhi Sultanate of Medieval India in Splash Spring 15 (May. 02, 2015)
In the 12th century, a great Sultanate was established by Turkish Warlords in Northern India and rose up out of Delhi. This was one of the first attempts by any ruler to consolidate major parts of the Indian subcontinent under one rule. With the assistance of their Turkish, Afghan, Persian and Hindu elites, the Sultans faced many threats both internally and externally from the prowling Mongols who terrorized Central Asia. The Sultanate saw the spread of Islam to India, and the rise of a unique and innovative Indic-Islamic culture that combined both ancient Indian and Central Asian traditions. Learn about what the rest of the world did during the European Renaissance, the rise of a great empire, and the foundation of the culture of what is today history’s largest democracy.
