Established in 1978, the Ancient India & Iran Trust occupies a unique position as an independent charity concerned with the study of early India, Iran and Central Asia, promoting both scholarly research and popular interest in the area.

We have a library of over 50,000 items and organise a range of activities including conferences, public lectures and visiting fellowships. Our primary interest has been in prehistory, archaeology, art history and ancient languages, and often extending to more modern topics and other disciplines.
