Archaeology is a neglected field of study in eastern India. However, the area from Arunachal to Orissa and Bihar covers a very large chunk of the subcontinent and is also along its most distinctive cultural areas. From this point of view the establishment of a new archaeological research institute, Centre for Archaeological Studies and Training, in Calcutta by the Directorate of Archaeology and Museums, Government of Bengal, is a welcome development. In September 1996 the author who possesses a grassroots familiarity with the issues facing archaeological research in this region delivered a num... View more info

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 wi... View more info

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 ... View more info

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 observat... View more info

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 po...

This book discusses the geographical implications of the locations of the Asokan edicts and is based on field-studies of many of these locations. The Asokan studies have largely been based, since their inception, on the issues of language, script and grammar, and one hopes that the studies of this kind, which are important ingredients of Asokan scholarship, will continue to be undertaken. However, textual scholarship or grammatical rules do not necessarily lead by themselves to historical or geographical knowledge. By studying in detail the geographical locations of the Asokan edicts, the pres... View more info

This volume has sought to examine the basic elements of geographical, historical, economic and religious interactions between the accepted outer boundary line of the Indian subcontinent and the major geographical zones which lie outside it. The various boundary lines, which were drawn from time to time in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to define the sub-continent in relation to its overland neighbours, were the products of the contemporary political circumstances and the consensus between the negotiating governments, but behind the apparent precision of these boundary li...

It is important to reassess, formulate and develop India's civilizational and cultural imperatives in an increasingly globalised world. The nation?s perception of its ancient history plays a major role in this. The present series on the history of ancient India was conceived with this in mind. The aim is to put forward a nationalistic, factual and objective history of the ancient Indian past in eleven volumes. The cobwebs of certain ideas that we have lived with in the past are critically examined and in many cases found wanting and discarded. The present volume, i.e. Volume I, is about the ge...

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 th... View more info

"The aim of the fieldwork, on which this book is based, was to explore the possibility of conducting archaeological excavations in Surat where the Europeans including the British were most likely to have left behind the material traces of their presence between 16 and 18 centuries. However, before undertaking such excavations, one should have an understanding of the historical frame-work within which the relevant archaeological issues can be contextualized. The purpose of this book is to put forward this framework and advance the general concept of ‘The Archaeology of European Expansion... View more info

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.

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 Prinsep’s chain of reasoning when he was studying the early Indian coins o...
