“The mystery of India’s lost port of Muziris has captivated archaeologists for decades.
Once at the heart of one of the world’s most influential trading routes, and hailed by Roman author Pliney the Elder as ‘the first emporium of India’, Muziris was known for its rich selection of spices, gems, ivory and silk.
