1 Dilip K. Chakrabarti
A History of Indian Archaeology from the Beginning to 1947
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121500796 / 9788121500791; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The history of Indian archaeology has not received the academic attention it deserves. It has a number of roots, the earliest of which goes back to the records of European travellers and sailors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The ideas involved in its steady evolution since the middle of the eighteenth century are interesting in their own right and illuminate the history of the major discoveries and developments of the subject. Concerned with the evolving panorama of the Indian archaeological scene as a whole till 1947, this is the first major work of its kind. The author moves with an easy assurance, clarity and precision over a vast and diverse body of literature. The volume is further enriched by the inclusion of two original documents relating to Alexander Cunningham and Lord Curzon. This is a book which nobody with an interest in South Asian archaeology can possible afford to ignore. Printed Pages: 271. 014451

2 F.R. Allchin and Dilip K. Chakrabarti (eds.)
A Source-book of Indian Archaeology: Vol. II: Settlements, Technology and Trade
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8121504651 / 9788121504652; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The articles selected for this anthology are meant to act as a guide to the changing ramifications and some major foci of Indian archaeology up to the mid-eighties. The subsequent publications are still too close to us for a clear historical assessment. Although published some eighteen years later than the first volume, compiled with the same intention this is a definitive 'source-book' in its own right and will further help people to turn to some major studies which have become over the years difficult of access. Printed Pages: 716 with 99 illustrations. 000106

A Source-book of Indian Archaeology: Vol. III: Human Remains, Prehistoric Roots of Religious Beliefs, First Steps in Historical Archaeology; Sculpture, Architecture, Coins and Inscriptions
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510163 / 9788121510165; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This volume, the third and final part of A Source-book of Indian Archaeology, takes one to the tentative beginnings of Indian sculptural, architectural, numismatic and inscriptional studies and tries to give an idea of what has been generally achieved in the fields of human skeletal discoveries, rock-art and religion. The articles chosen for the first section will give a feel of how it all began: how were some of the classical sculptural and architectural sites of the subcontinent approached and described and what was Prinsepís chain of reasoning when he was studying the early Indian coins or grappling with the decipherment of Asokan inscriptions? Our intention was only to draw attention to the basic foundations of these sub-disciplines. A consideration of their later developments was not within our focus. For the rest of the topics, we decided to remain content with a limited number of essays which played a role in shaping these themes. Taken together, the three volumes of A Source-book of Indian Archaeology offer a definitive historical perspective of Indian archaeology through a selection of astonishingly wide-ranging but integrated body of sources up to the 1980s. Printed Pages: 301 with illustrations. 000107

Archaeological Geography of the Ganga Plain: The Upper Ganga (Oudh, Rohilkhand, and the Doab)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121511852 / 9788121511858; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Based on archaeological field-work for six seasons (1999-2001, 2002-5), this book examines the problems of ancient political units, urban centres, and routes of the upper Ganga plain between Pratapgarh in the south and the foothills of Uttaranchal (Uttarakhand) in the north. This also examines how the links were maintained between this Himalayan belt and the plain, and what could be the general period by which the Himalayan pilgrim-spots of this sector came into focus. This book and the earlier one on the archaeological geography of the lower and middle Ganga plain sum up the author's observations on the historico-geographical survey of the Ganga plain which he conducted for fourteen field seasons beginning in 1991. In many ways these books demonstrate how it is possible to gain insights into the ancient historical reality of a region by going over the modern ground with a feel for the land, historical understanding, and the scholarship to back it. This is a path-breaking effort in Indian archaeology. Printed Pages: 259 with numerous b/w illustrations. 021373

Archaeology of Eastern India: Chhotanagpur Plateau and West Bengal
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121506018 / 9788121506014; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
For a number of reasons the archaeology of the Chhotanagpur plateau and its extension up to the edge of the Bhagirathi plain in West Bengal deserves more than a passing mention in Indian archaeology. First, its sheer geographical extent requires emphasis: more than a hundred thousand square kilometres spread diagonally between the hills overlooking the Ganges near Rajmahal to the hills in southwestern Singhbhum on the one hand and between the northwesternmost part of Palamau to the Sonamukhi and Garh Jaipur forests in the eastern section of Bankura on the other. Secondly, the entire region is full of archaeological sites from the lower palaeolithic stage onwards, and some of the major issues of cultural development in eastern India are centred around them. Thirdly, the plateau which is rich in metals, stones and timber is the most important resource-bearing area in east India, and the way in which it was integrated into an exchange network with the plains may be a major archaeological and historic theme of study. Fourthly, the region as a whole is a home of a large number of tribal communities on various levels of subsistence and with different linguistic affiliations. Early this century a government officer wrote that it was as near as one could get to 'primitive India' but does this 'primitiveness' mean that this was an 'area of isolation' cut off from the main flow of Indian history? Which areas of study admit of the possibilities of ethnographic continuum between the prehistoric past and in the preindustrial present in this region? Based on field-surveys undertaken between 1981 and 1987, this work studies the archaeology of this region as a whole. Archaeological research in this region goes back to the 1860s but it is perhaps for the first time that the region as a whole has been studied and various dimensions of its archaeology focussed. This is also one of the major attempts to view archaeology as long-term settlement history in the context of India. Printed Pages: 242 with 31 line drawings and 14 b/w illustrations. 017897

Copper and its Alloys in Ancient India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 81-215-0767-3; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
This book offers a comprehensive discussion on the distribution of ores of copper and its alloys in the Indian subcontinent and critically reviews the related archaeological and metallurgical data, underscoring the tremendous richness and complexity of this tradition in early India. Further, the entire spectrum of the Indian literary sources on copper and related metallurgy has been examined with reference to its major features. Finally, this volume undertakes a detailed study of the rich and continuing preindustrial tradition of Indian copper and copper-alloy metallurgy and unequivocally brings out its significance in understanding the ancient context. In a number of ways this is a path-breaking study. Printed Pages: 240 with maps and line drawings. 007927

Fifty Years of Indian Archaeology (1960-2010): Journey of a Foot Soldier
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8173054290 / 9788173054297; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present volume may be judged on two levels. On the first level, it deals with the beginning and the current status of archaeology in the Indian university system, focussing primarily on the author's own experience as a long-standing teacher of the subject. It also outlines the author's personal background and early academic roots, hoping to give an idea of the types of students who were drawn to archaeology in India in its early phase. There are also notes on his professional experience in the Indian universities he has served. It should be possible to assess on the basis of these notes the general state of affairs in the historical studies section of the Indian universities. On the second level, this book offers a detailed review of the development of various ideas, research themes and field-projects in Indian archaeology over the last fifty years with special reference to the author's own work. Indian archaeological writings have seldom been concerned with the historiography of ideas and research themes, and from this point of view the present book may be considered a reasonably elaborate examination of how archaeology has developed as an academic discipline in the Indian university framework.
