Some medieval European geographers located a paradise at the mouth of the Ganges River that was the deltaic land of Bengal. Bengal is the ancient name of present day Bangladesh. Bengal was the wealthiest part of the Indian Subcontinent until the 16th century.
It is assumed that the Austro – Asiatic race first inhabited this region in prehistoric age. Afterwards came the Dravidians, Aryans and Mongoloids. Archeological excavations show signs of powerful dynasties that ruled the land till the Muslims from the Central Asian region conquered it in the 13th century AD and established their rule. A succession of Muslim monarchies ruled over the area till 1757, when the British conquest took place. In 1947 the British left the Indian Subcontinent and Bengal came to be known as East Bengal and then in 1956 as East Pakistan. In 1971 through an armed struggle Bangladesh emerged as an independent state.
