Chandraketugarh: A Lost Civilization (Volume 1)

Gourisankar De (Author) Shubhradip De (Author)
Synopsis Bengal, a land of rivers and the home of a wonderful ancient culture, was marked by flourishing cities and ports both in the Pre-Christian and Post-Christian days. Chandraketugarh is one of these sports. According to R.D. Banerjee, it was one of the oldest archaeological sites in India. Unfortunately, little justice has been done to the place and the civilization of Chandraketugarh is still largely shrouded in mystery. Even the very name Chandraketugarh, instead of disclosing its identity, only clounds the hoary antiquity the place. The present work is a serious attempt to explain the motifs and symbols of the lost civilization of Chandraketugarh which now survives only through her unparalleled Terracotta art and other antiquities.
