Based on extensive field-studies in 1999-2002, this book sets out to trace the routes which linked the Ganga-Yamuna plain between Rajagriha and Mathura with Andhra (eastern Deccan) and Maharashtra (western Deccan) in the ancient period. What has emerged is the essential framework of a complex network of routes still traceable on the ground. This network has also been compared with the corresponding evidence in the mediaeval and later historic records, and it has been argued that, although the routes of these later periods had partly changed their alignments with the rise of new economic and political centres of power, the ancient alignments did not die out but continued to function at the grassroots level. This may be said to be the first field-study of its kind in the context of ancient Indian routes. Printed Pages: 183 with numerous b/w plates.
