Over-viewing my research with the Caravanserai Networks Project and looking at Mughal Caravanserais (1500-1800 AD) in Northern South Asia this talk examines the importance of these structures in facilitating trade and travel across the Northern Subcontinent. Caravanserai served as vital nodes that echoed Imperial power and control and that contributed, and continue to contribute, to regional and personal notions of identity - both for users and administrators. I explore these concepts through architectural analysis focused on the creation of temporally bounded 3-Dimensional models, the methodology and contributions of which I will also overview in this talk.
