Gautam Sengupta (Editor) Sharmi Chakraborty (Editor)
Synopsis The book focuses on the present state of our understanding of archaeology of the early historic period.  It explores archaeological methods-aims, objectives and practices.  It addresses key issues that are traditionally associated with early historic archaeology.  It tries to understand the changes that have taken place in the past decades due to the emergence of new issues, theories and methods.  Through thirty essays arranged in five sections the book charts through the various issues of early historic archaeology of the subcontinent.  The reader will get an idea of the scope and evolution of this sub-discipline, use of natural sciences in understanding the processes of early history, relevance of text-aided archaeology, recent trends in study of different artifacts, problems related to early urbanization and exchange mechanisms, etc.  The volume would be useful for readers interested in the history of the early South Asia.
