Synopsis The List is mainly based on the official epigraphical publications of the Archaeological Survey of India, like Annual Reports on Indian Epigraphy, Epigraphia Indo-Moslemica and its continuation Epigraphia Indica Arabic and Persian Supplement, reports of the State archaeological departments, private publications in Persian and Urdu including periodicals and journals, not easily available to scholars and research students. It provides the most important but sadly neglected source-material for medieval history. Apart from providing a comprehensive list of more than 2,000 inscriptions from West Indian states of Goa, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan, its topographical list of places and nine exhaustive indexes—States, Districts, Dates, Dynasties, Kings, Persons, Findspots. Subjects and Buildings, Places, Professions, Terms, etc. mentioned in the epigraphs—will enable one to immediately lay his hand on an inscription of any place, any date. any dynasty, any king, total inscriptions from a district, a state, of a dynasty, a king, etc. The List can truly claim to be a very useful tool for researchers in the multi-dimensional history of medieval India.
