Overview for Ancient Delhi
This book traces the history of Delhi from the stone age to the time of the Rajputs. Against a background of the history of India, it meticulously weaves together evidence from stone tools, ancient mounds, pottery, monuments, sculpture, references in literature and legend to reconstruct a comprehensive and lively historical narrative. Written in a style aimed at accuracy as well as clarity, the book will be of interest to historians, students of history, general readers--in fact anybody who is interested in Delhi's ancient past. The text is accompanied by several maps and a large number of photographs which bring alive Delhi's little-known ancient history.
