I am in London and have reader access to British Library. In case a member is looking for something specific which isn't available elsewhere (except British Library), let me know and I will try to help.
They don't issue stuff to take away. You can get it reserved and read within library. Copy service is available but perhaps (not sure) costly.
They can also fetch stuff on loan from other local libraries if we request.

Regards,
Virendra

Virendra If you find anything on why Timur retreated from the Himalayan foothills and did not replace Feroz Shah Tughlaq would be grateful.

Namaste Ramana
I can search for books on Timur and look them up. But beside that, do you have any specific piece of text / book that you want accessed for this?
I don't know where else to start or what else to search for :P

Any records on 27 year war between Maratas and Mughals is one. There is one book by Balkishan on Shivaji Maharaj which was not readily available is another. This book said to have been reprinted recently but I could not get it. This writer wrote the story of Shivaji Maharaj from Indic eyes.

Do you have access to Harappa/Mohenjadaro seals or books describing those seals?

Easy guys .. my access is what anybody with a Id and address proof in UK can get for free. :(
I go to the library once a week only, for my studies.
But I will try to address these queries one by one.

Can you please help me by looking up the library's catalogues here. Let me know what you want from it. I can access it, read it there and revert :-
General/Main Catalogue - http://explore.bl.uk/primo_library/libw ... &vid=BLVU1
Catalogue of Archives and old Manuscripts - http://searcharchives.bl.uk/primo_libra ... Login=true

Not quite ancient or medieval history, but the Brits recently released some home videos of a senior ICS diplomat and his family being escorted through Iran by the secretive Indian Long Range Squadron (ILRS). Its war history states that the ILRS patrolled the Iran-USSR border, but this footage is really in Iran-Baluchistan border area and their security is also handed off to a Red Army patrol. I am curious if there are better records of where ILRS were really deployed, and how far south the Red Army patrolled?
