Overview for Atlas of Ancient Indian History

This book presents the most detailed mapping yet attempted of India during ancient times, from the arrival of man to c. AD 750. The text aims at providing substantiation, through adequate referencing, of what has been depicted on the maps. It also seeks to clarify many problems of archaeology and chronology that beset mapping of ancient India.

The character of the information varies, to a considerable extent, according to the nature of the sources available. While in the first four maps the atlas mainly delineates the areas of archaeological cultures, in subsequent maps it becomes possible to show approximate boundaries of dynastic states. Economic information is furnished for all periods; and linguistic changes are also traced to the degree possible.

Over 1075 sites and places are plotted on the maps, and precise coordinates for them are furnished in an index. There is a full bibliography, listing all sources used. The atlas is thus designed to serve both as a work of reference for the researcher and as an aid to the general reader in understanding the ever-changing human geography of our ancient land.
