The first part of the book is devoted to the history of "Ancient" India. As the famous Eposes-chronicles "Mahabharata" and "Ramayana", as considered, lie in the fundament of the Indian history, we focused exactly on them. The done by us analysis showed that both Eposes, most likely, are not so ancient, as it was usually considered. They describe the real events of the epoch of XIV-XVI centuries, in particular, happening in Rus.
We remind that in the base of the new chronology there are MATHEMATICAL, STATISTICAL, ASTRONOMICAL AND CALENDAR-ASTRONOMICAL METHODS, created by us and stated in the books, indicated in the list of literature. Exactly the NATURAL-SCIENTIFIC METHODS let us create that fundament, on which we try to reconstruct the universal history of the Ancient times. The datings, received by us based on the modern natural-scientific methods, are absolutely INDEPENDENT. All of them allow a thorough checking by qualified researchers. Although, of course, some work is required for this. Exactly the natural-scientific methods and the received with their help results lie in the base of THE NEW CHRONOLOGY - that "spinal column", around which a NONCONTRADICTORY VERSION OF THE HISTORY OF ANCIENTRY AND MIDDLE AGES should be built.
The proposed by us reconstruction of the universal history is yet in a considerable measure SUPPOSITIONAL. Nevertheless, its main statements, as it seems us, are already well reasoned. As for the details, of course they could be clarified and subject to changes. Here a wide field of activity opens for scientists of the most various specialties- mathematicians, physicians, astronomers, linguists, codebreakers, archeologists, historians, archivists.
In the present book we don't repeat our mathematical and other natural-scientific methods in chronology. We try to read once again the ancient chronicles and evidences, resting on the built by us earlier new chronology. The provided statements usually don't constitute independent proofs. They are aimed, first of all, at "the build-up of historical body" on the ready "chronological skeleton".
We show that the ancient documents allow a natural and noncontradictory reading based on the new, short chronology of the ancientry. With this, we have to pay attention to unexpectedly appearing linguistic parallels, new possible readings of the ancient proper names. Already many times we underlined (and underline once again), that linguistic considerations themselves don't represent proofs of anything. They are useful only as additions to precise chronological results.
In the first part the important moments of the history of "Ancient" India are reconstructed. For example, we discover that the Biblical events, many of which took place in Russia, were reflected on the pages of the Indian chronicles. That is – in the Great = "Mongol" Empire of the XIV-XVI centuries, the governance of which concentrated in its two main centers: Russia-Horde (Vladimir-Suzdal Russia with the capital in Yaroslavl = Novgorod the Great in chronicles) and Osmania-Atamania (with the capital in Tsar-Grad).
Many researchers paid attention to the tight connection between India and Rus. A theory that Aryas (Aryans), who founded the Indian civilization, came from the North, has been for a long time discussed in scientific literature. Our studies confirm this connection. Moreover, we show that the Aryas came to India from Russia-Horde in the XIV-XV centuries A.D., already after the Battle of Kulikovo.
In the second part of the book separate studies on the new chronology are collected.
