Description

Illustrated throughout with photographs, maps and line diagrams, this work incorporates the results of the most recent research offering an original and stimulating perspective on the archaeology of the subcontinent.

Many spectacular discoveries of archaeological significance have been made in the Indian subcontinent since the first appearance of Raymond and Bridget Allchin' book: The Birth of Indian Civilization, for long the most authoritative and widely read text on its subject.

Advances in related fields, particularly in geomorphology, palaeobotany and palaeoclimatology, have also radically altered our picture of the emergence of Indian civilization. In this work, the authors have completely revised and rewritten their earlier work to present an integrated and dynamic account of human culture in South Asia.

An invaluable offering to students of South Asian culture and early history. It will also appeal to anyone interested in historical geography, world prehistory and archaeology in general.

THE AUTHORS:

Raymond Allchin is Reader in Indian Studies, University of Cambridge; Bridget Allchin is Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge.
