Archaeological Investigation in Bogra District: From Early Historic to Early Mediaeval Period

Shah Sufi Mostafizur Rahman (Author)
Synopsis The value of Dr. Rahman's work lies in the fact that he examined first hand the sites with a critical eye evaluating the evidence afresh, determining chronology where permissible. He took extra-ordinary initiative of making trial trenches at two spots and correlating the excavated finds with those found in exploration. The area was wholly or partly studied by earlier authors. Dr. Rahman, an archaeologist of younger generation, being equipped with advanced ideas is unhesitant in depreciating works of such predecessors. His evaluation may be taken as unprejudiced as they aim at the comparative technical incompetence of those pioneer works. This study encompasses sites belonging to a period from Early Historic to Early Mediaeval and examines the ecological setting. Documenting the datable materials along with a close study of geographical elements is its particular focus. The resultant reconstruction of the cultural sequence in the regional context and the recognition of the settlement patterns are no less significant. Those familiar with Bangladesh archaeology will be particularly thrilled by the discovery of Northern Black Polished Ware and the Rouletted Ware at quite a few places by Dr. Rahman during his investigation within the study area. The survey sites being time and again related to Mahasthangarh or Pundranagar, the earliest urban site of Bengal, the central role of the ancient metropolis becomes more spectacular as well as meaningful. The present work will remain as a basic source book for the Bangladesh archaeology and the field oriented students will find it as a model for their further work.
