Ancient Bundelkhand

Kirit K. Shah (Author)
Synopsis The book is a beautiful narrative of bygone Bunderlkhand and verily brings it alive. Based entirely on archaeological remains and epigraphic records of the region, it is an authentic as well as analytical account of India’s heartland. It defines Bundelkhand tracing the origin of its name and fixing its frontiers in historical perspective. It social and political formations have been presented with as much precision as permitted by the sources, documenting in the process the details of inter action between the Little and Great Traditions. Conceived around the core-theme of Religion, the narrative nowhere separates from contemporary political or social structure and economic life or artistic expression. Sources so far unutilized have been utilized and sites so far unnoticed have been noticed. Incorporating a lit that is worth-recording and remembering about Ancient and Early-Medieval Bundelkhand, the book attempts to cover a period of more than three millennia from the dawn of civilization to the downfall of the Candellas in the fourteenth century A.D. with as many details and as much analysis as can be reasonably accommodated, maintaining the unity of scheme and impression.
