A Source-book of Indian Archaeology (Volume II)

Dilip K Chakrabarti (Author) F. Schmithusen (Editor) F.R. Allchin (Editor)
Synopsis The articles selected for this anthology are meant to act as a guide to the changing ramifications and some major foci of Indian archaeology up to the mid-eighties. The subsequent publications are still too close to us for a clear historical assessment. Although published some eighteen years later than the first volume, compiled with the same intention this is a definitive 'source-book' in its own right and will further help people to turn to some major studies which have become over the years difficult of access. Like archaeology elsewhere, Indian archaeology too is getting increasingly complex and perhaps polarized. In a sense the articles incorporated in the present volume serve as a reminder of some of the issues which confronted Indian archaeology before the current phase of complexity and politicization. The relevant literature, right from the beginning of Indian archaeological studies, was carefully scrutinized in its entirety before the present volume was compiled.
