Description

The treatise analyses the evolution of the social life of ancient Orissa by a fresh interpretation of known facts in the light of modern research on an all-India basis. It deals with the transformation of the tribal society into the Brahmanical society in Orissa in ancient times, and the role-played by the feudal economy in such a transformation.

Moreover, there is in the book a judicious use of epigraphic, sculptural and literary evidences on various aspects of ancient Orissan society. The work throws light on the caste system, position of women, education and literature, food and drink, game and pastime as well as ornament, costume and coiffure in ancient Orissan society.
