Vedic

The Vedic Period (or Vedic Age) is the period during which the Vedas, texts related to early Indo-Aryan religion, were being composed, during the period of roughly the mid second to mid first millennium BCE.

The associated culture, sometimes referred to as Vedic civilization, was centered in the northern and northwestern parts of the Indian subcontinent.

Chronologically, its early phase overlaps with the Late Harappan period and its late phase with the rise of the Mahajanapadas (early Indo-Aryan kingdoms in India). After the end of the Vedic period, the Mahajanapadas in turn gave way to the Maurya Empire (from ca. 320 BCE), the golden age of classical Sanskrit literature. (Wikipedia)
