This presentation traces the story of the British Raj from its last capital in Delhi to its original capital in Calcutta (Kolkata).
Between these two major cities lie Meerut where the Indian Mutiny began in May 1857; Lucknow with its magnificent nawabi buildings and poignant ruined British Residency and Cawnpore with its Mutiny memorials. A river trip from Calcutta takes us up the Hooghly to the old Danish settlement at Serampore.
This is a tour for anyone interested in colonial India and particularly for family historians researching their own ancestral roots in the Raj. If you know, or think, you have family buried in India, we will try to help you find their graves.
Join Indus Experiences's Managing Director: Yasin Zargar and Trip Scholar Dr Rosie Llewellyn-Jones MBE for this fascinating presentation followed by a Q&A session.
