What was The golden age of the maurya empire?
it was called the golden age because they gained tons of wealth. ^~No sh**, Sherlock. The Mauryan Empire can contribute its wealth and success to Asoka. Asoka can be considered as India's most honoured ruler; he expanded friendly relations to Rome, created the Edicts of Asoka that kept the people in line, had religious tolerance, very peaceable and friendly... the list goes on and on. Asoka expanded the empire to encompass the rest of the Indian subcontinent (Through the battle of Kalinga) his grandfather, Chandragupta, conquered the Northern tip of the subcontinent. Golden ages are defined through their economic growth and stability, geographic land area, activity, organization, and the arts (Although the arts were scant during the Maurya Empire). Oh, and they're wealthy, but I'm sure you figured that out. Captain obvious above here seemed to.

What are details of the rise of Ancient Maurya?
Mauryas were the decendents of the ruling class of Shakya. Shakyas ruled Sravasti near Nepal and were were vassals of Kashi, both decending from Brihadbal, the Ikshavaku King of Kashi, who made a supreme sacrifice on the grounds of Kurukshetra in Mahabharat war. Kashi King Prasenjit, a contemporary of Shakyamuni Gautam Buddha, wanted to marry a Shakya Princess. When the child by this marriage Arya Vidudhubha when went to his materanal people , the Shakyas, he was insulted by being called Dasi-Putra. It appeared that Shakyas (Shakya by name Mahan, a cousin of Buddha) had married his daughter through a dasi (slave woman) to King of Kashi. Prasenjit removed Vidhudhuba from the post of Crown prince, but restored his place when Gautam Buddha intervened. Kashi defeated Ajatshatru, King of Magadh and became the biggest power in subcontinent. Arya Vidhudhuba invaded his maternal people and drove them endlessly. These people (the nobility of Shakyas and relatives of Shakyamuni Buddha) started calling themselves Maury and were actually driven of very very far. Brahma reduced Mauryas to three cities. Chandragupta Maurya's father was king of Maurya-nagari, one of these three cities. His father was killed in an uprising against Maurya and his mother came to swarnabhumi (North West India) with her son. With the support of Chanakya, a Brahmin, Chandragupt Maurya became king of Magadh and founded the Maurya empire. Sons of Ashok Maurya ruled the world till Mauryan cities were destroyed by Shiva, the destroyer of cities. In the sub-continent, Maurya empire was ended around the same time by his own general by the name Pushyamitra Sunga, the biggest enemy of sons of Shakya. Mauryas now a days rule as agriculturists.

When was the first caesarean performed?
As far as we know, the first caesarian was performed in 320 BC. It's possible that the procedure was used before then, but we'll never know because it was either not recorded or the records may have been lost to time. In 320 BC, a woman called Durdha, who was the mother of Bindusara (the emperor of the Maurya Empire), accidentally swallowed poison. Knowing she was pregnant with the heir to the empire, a man called Chanakya, who was a teacher and advisor, decided that Durdhara should be cut open so that the heir to the empire could possibly be saved. So Durdhara's womb was cut open and Bindusara was born by caesarian as his mother was dying of poisoning. Bindusara later became the emperor of the Maurya Empire.

Was the Roman time in the dark ages?
When people talk about Roman times, they are usually talking about ancient Rome, before the fall of the West Roman Empire, the event that started the so-called Dark Ages. Rome existed throughout the Dark Ages, both as a city, and as a country. The country, called the Roman Empire at that time, is now called the Byzantine Empire, so it can be distinguished from the ancient Roman Empire.
