Untouchables of India

I am looking for information regarding the untouchable people of India, particularly during the classical civilization period (up until around 500 C.E.), and the differences between their rights and the rights of slaves in India during that time period. Whether or not the untouchables had more legal representation, social rights, etc.

Googled all sorts of combinations of India, classical period, untouchables, rights, untouchables and slavery in India, but not much of any help has come up.
