Mapping the Indo-Pacific Beads vis-à-vis Papanaidupet is not only about beads, bead production cycle, people involved in their manufacture, and traditional bead users, but also about the most important glass bead city of the world. The archaeological community has spent considerable time and energy in reconstructing ancient cities with bead workshops and has formulated many hypotheses about them. This is the first and last time that a bead city identical to those of 2,500 years old has been recorded ethnographically and visually in full detail. This attempt has captured a visual model for future glass and glass bead researchers. The book discusses the history and context of research on Indian glass, drawing its data from ancient literature, archival and archaeological sources. The rationale of the work is to answer the puzzles raised by archaeological evidence with an ethnoarchaeological approach. Printed Pages: 104.
