The Vedic age lasted from about 1,500 BC to 500 BC. This period was named for the Vedas, which are a group of four religious texts including the Rigveda, which is the oldest Veda. During this age, the Vedas had not yet been written down, so the Aryan priests would have to memorize and recite them. In the Vedic Age, many Indian traditions and concepts were developed. Some of these include the Indians respect for their cattle, the caste system which is used in India to divide people into social groups, and the idea that Rajahs should rule. Rajahs were chiefs of the Aryan tribes and were often skilled war leaders who had been elected by the warriors of the tribe. The Vedic Age is important because the polytheistic beliefs that developed during this age have helped to create the religion of Hinduism.
