Cultural History of Maharashtra and Goa : From Place Name Inscriptions

Malati Mahajan (Author)
Synopsis Place names from inscriptions have been studied in the past for tracing the historical geography and cultural ethnography but they have rarely been taken into account along with other evidences from other sources like literature or sculpture etc. with a view to work out the cultural history of any region for a particular period. In the present work attempt has been made to remove this lacuna by corroborating and supplimenting the data obtained from place names with that of internal evidence from epigraphs, literature and sculptures, wher-ever possible. Place names from inscriptions ranging in date from c. 2nd B.C.-1300 A.D found in Maharashtra have been classified here on the basis of prefixes and suffixes into groups like settlements, administration and polity and economic, social and religious conditions. Administrative divisions known to have been prevalent under different dynasties have been shown in nine maps arranged dynastywise. Besides, there are diagrams showing settlement patterns too.
