An invaluable introduction to the pre-history and proto-history of the Indian subcontinent.This comprehensive survey of the foundations of Indian culture has been written by two authors with first-hand experience of digging in India. When it was first published in 1968, this work provided a comprehensive account of archaeological work done in the subcontinent up to that time. Today, it is still a very useful summary of archaeological research in the subcontinent. A new preface provides an overview of the major developments in the field since the book first appeared. As an introduction to the history, this book is of great value to students and interested reader.
