Forts and Fortifications in Medieval Bengal

Ayesha Begum (Author)

Forts and Fortifications in Medieval Bengal is a new addition to the Medieval Architectural History of Bengal.

She visited almost all the forts and their remnants in the country and made personal investigations and took photographs.
