Hi there, I’m looking for a good book on what life would have been like for an ordinary person at the time of the Buddha. So far, all I’ve found is “Buddhist India” by Rhys Davids. It’s relevant, but I’m wondering if there’s anything more modern, updated with modern scholarship. I’m not looking for a review of the Pali Canon or something on Early Buddhism itself.
