Ancient Metal Technology and Archaeology of South Asia
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173051771 / 9788173051777; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The focus of the Book is primarily on the ancient metal technology of South Asia but its not a technical treatise. Archaeometallurgy has been situated in the matrix of archaeology. Such studies have a meaning only in the human Context of the past. The introductory chapter of the book emphasises, by giving examples, what such technical studies should aim at and what all one can glean about the past through them. The main emphasis is on copper/bronze but other metals have been duly covered: silver, gold, tin, arsenic, lead, brass and iron. As more detailed work is available now for the Indus civilisation and its antecedent cultures, it has been discussed in two detailed chapters. But the other chalcolithic cultures and the copper hoards have also been dealt with in adequate detail. The History of brass is quite polemical and it has therefore been given one full chapter. The chapter on iron summarises all the relevant issues but one could not go into all the details, as it requires a book to itself. The Central Himalayan region has been shown to be equally important for understanding the archaeometallurgy of South Asia. Linguistic evidence has been used to emphasise some of the new perspectives. Socio-economic implications of the archaeometallurgical evidence have been thoroughly discussed. The development of Indian metal technologies has been given in a global perspective but with a different bias. So far the emphasis has always been on West Asia. For the first time South Asian archaeometallurgy has been studied in the context of the eastern cultures of China, Thailand and Japan. The book gives an up-to-date summary of the recent archaeometallurgical evidence from China, Japan and Thailand. The problems to be addressed to in the future studies have also been highlighted. All in all it is a book with a different perspective, written without using much technical jargon, tracing the evolution of metal technologies in an archaeological context. It is addressed to the general reader, but a specialist will also find adequate detail that one may need.Printed Pages: 272 with 3 maps & 57 halftone illustrations. 100199

Central Himalayas: An Archaeological, Linguistic and Cultural Synthesis
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8173051321 / 9788173051326; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book on the Central Himalayas surveys the cultural and archaeological evidence in an inter-disciplinary perspective. Though a variety of interdisciplinary data have been used, the approach is holistic. The book is focused on Kumaun and Garhwal, yet it is related to the sub-continental framework with a global backdrop. The main emphasis has been on prehistory. This is the first systematic and scientific documentation of rock art and cup marks found in the region. It also deals with the megalithic problem and discusses the different types of megaliths found in the region. Through critical sifting of the data, the oldest megaliths/burials have been identified and some of them have been 14C dated.The ancient metal technological evidence has been thoroughly investigated and its role in supplying copper and iron to the Gangetic plains has been discussed. The archaeological and cultural data are interpreted in an ethnographic framework. Recent linguistic research has also been used to understand the Central Himalayan prehistory. Though the emphasis of the book is on prehistory, a chapter is devoted to historical archaeology, architecture and sculpture and iconography. Some important cultural symbols like Nanda have been discussed in their multiple forms and how much they mean to the local people. The cultural history of this region is brought right up to the modern times. The necessity and viability of the proposed state of Uttaranchal has also been discussed. The cultural scene is presented as a continuous process from the hoary past to a lofty future. Printed Pages: 214 with 47 figures 25 colour illustrations. 100203

11 D.P. Agrawal & J.S. Kharakwal
South Asian Prehistory
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052360 / 9788173052361; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Book on South Asian prehistory covers the story of humans from the beginning of the Stone Age to the advent of Agriculture and animal husbandry. The authors have not confined themselves to merely typological descriptions of tools but have tried to look beyond -- to the humans and their society that created them. As the authors have done considerable work on palaeoenvironment of Kashmir and Rajasthan, they have provided an environmental backdrop to the History of human cultures in the subcontinent. They have also provided a chronological framework to Stone Age Cultures based on a variety of physical techniques. This is the first time that the South Asian Stone Age Cultures are being described in a multidisciplinary framework. The book gives an interesting backdrop of the latest findings of hominids from Africa and other continents. It starts with the Early and Middle Palaeolithic Cultures and then devotes a chapter to the transitional Stone Age Cultures, which eventually led to domestication of plants and animals. The chapter on Early Farming Cultures not only gives regional pictures of the Neolithic Cultures but also discusses the far fetched effects of the major transition from hunting and food collecting to agriculture. It shows that the agriculture revolution has been a mixed blessing as in its wake have come a variety of diseases, epidemics and other calamities. A full chapter has been devoted to rock art studies, giving an up-to-date summary of the regional rock art traditions of the South, of the Himalayas and of Central India. In the concluding chapter the authors summarise the evidence and also point towards the need for further research in various related fields.Printed Pages: 284 with 36 figures, 6 maps & 35 halftone illustrations. 100198
