The scandal of an alleged discovery of the ashes of Buddha, from the author of "Plain Tales of the Raj."
From the Publisher:

"[Allen] pieces the story together like shards of a broken vase."—Sara Wheeler,The Sunday Telegraph

In this fascinating book Charles Allen unravels the saga of an archeological discovery and a twisted tale of truth and lies that has divided Buddhist scholars for a century. Reconstructing the forested Tarai landscape of the fifth century BC in which the Buddha was raised, Allen employs a strong narrative to reveal the truth behind the alleged discovery of the Buddha's ashes in 1898 and the subsequent controversies that surrounded uncertain and compromised excavation and the numerous parties involved.
