There is a lot of material on the Internet with vastly varying degree of authenticity and differences of opinions on this topic. Are there any authors, publications that are most reliable/scientific/trustworthy about history after the Mahabharat war up to the part of Indian history that is well researched/generally accepted in more recent centuries after that.

Chapters within Mahabharat describe some of the post war events, but I am looking for authentic research done on major history/chronology of events that connect the dots between end of Mahabharat war up until the point of already well known/researched/accepted eras of Indian history.

    Are you looking for descriptions of events after the Mahabharata in Hindu scripture? Nov 27 '16 at 4:12
  • Anywhere. Be it in scriptures or in books or papers as long as the content is generally regarded as authentic and reliable (rather than still debated) in community of sensible authors, researchers and readers (rather than blind believers and unscientific proponents of their own theories).

  • Quora has the same topic going and as you can see there is much variation. quora.com/What-happened-after-Mahabharata My goal is to build a list of material about the post war history that one can rely on for accuracy and objectivity. Nov 27 '16 at 4:22

    Well, obviously secular historians would dispute the validity of information found in Hindu scripture. In any case, History.SE may be a better fit for your question if you're just trying to find historical documentation of Indian history, rather than specifically what Hindu scripture has to say on the subject.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it belongs to History.SE. OP wants authentic proof. Hinduism.SE is based on beliefs!! Nov 27 '16 at 14:07
