Description

This 2-volume handbook gives somewhat comprehensive treatment of the varied and vast material that would satisfy even a casually-interested tourist.

Archaeological remains cannot be viewed in isolation from the culture they belong to; nor can monuments be divested of the architecture they partake of. Such considerations have resulted in the enlargement of the volume of the book over what was originally contemplated.

The book starts with the remains of the protohistoric age; the earlier, that is the prehistoric, age, till now identifiable in India almost solely by stone implements, without any but geological association, has been left out of its purview.
