Sutapa Sinha (Author)

The book embodies the critical analysis of forty-one major coin hoards and fifteen minor finds of the Bengal Sultans recovered from a vast geographical region, comprsing pre-partition Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand and Assam. The hoards discussed in the book consist mainly of coins of the Bengal Sultans but there are also coins of Delhi Sultans with a few sporadic specimens of the Bahamanis and the Sharqi Sultans in some hoards. Coins of the Suri Sultans and Mughal Emperor Akbar are also present in some others along with considerable number of specimen of Hindu rulers of Eastern India like the Kings of Koch Bihar and Tripira. The Corpus will thus help from an idea of the coinage and monetary system of Eastern India during the 13th-16th centuries CE. The data base of this book also offer scope for future research on socio-economic condition of medieval Bengal vis-a vis the contemporary sultanates and on the diplomatic relations of Bengal with the Kamrup and Kamta region during the some period.
