Reimagining South Asian Art, Culture and Archaeology

Madhab Choudhary (Editor) Anantashutosh Dwivedi (Editor) Azad Hind Gulshan Nanda (Editor)

This edited volume contains ten original research papers and essays on various aspects

of South Asian art, culture, and archaeology. The authors address the broad issues of

trans-disciplinarity and cultural complexity attested with the art and archaeological

practices of South Asia. It opens with a serious discussion on fundamental issues of

archaeology and suggests eff ective ways that would reframe the archaeological methods

of the future. The focus shift from the monument-centric approach to a collaborative

trans-disciplinary endeavour eventually reconceptualises archaeology as integrated into 

other disciplines. The voluminous rise in archaeological data generated through more so

phisticated scientifi c equipment testifies the close collaboration of archaeology with

science. The study of cultural sequence, urbanisation pattern, and contextual analysis

of material objects with nearby sites emerging more as a recent trend projects a novel

research trajectory of moving away from the conventional norms of disciplinary studies

and thereby adopting inter-disciplinary perspective in art-cultural studies. This book includes 

some preliminary reports of recent explorations and excavations conducted in Vangchhia

 (Mizoram) and Ganaur (Haryana). The report highlights the huge distribution of menhirs, 

petroglyphs,potteries, burial sites, and sculptural fragments all around Mizoram, thereby

outlying the distinguish presence of Vangchhia culture. The volume also builds

new perspectives to study the stylistic patterns, artistic developments, architectural

expansion, and cultural complexity through the site-specifi c study. These studies focus

on site-specifi c empirical research and demonstrate trans-disciplinarity and interdisciplinary

orientation of research in ancient South Asian studies
