  abstract = {This article presents a new method of testing hypotheses concerning ancient Indian chronology, namely, by comparing them with a sample of kings of medieval India whose dates are better known. Tables are drawn up showing the durations, to the nearest year, of one to ten successive generations and reigns of the medieval dynasties included in the sample, taking running totals within dynasties for each observation. The tables show only those 10% or so of cases at the extreme ends of the distributions, grouped about the means. The narrowing of the extremes which theory predicts is exceeded in the case of generations where the effect of the blood tie in reducing variation as more generations are taken into account is clearly seen. A chronological hypothesis of the sort 'x generations of kings (or reigns) occupied y years' can then be compared with the tables and a rough estimate of the order of probability it represents be formed.},
