 DESCRIPTION
spacer
This work has traced the maritime trade-links of the Kalingas from the prehistoric times, by diligently following a study-design based on the place-names of the land. With the assumption that names of some places indicate the origin of immigrants who had come to this country for maritime in the past, the author has screened more than fifty thousand place-names of Orissa, visited hundreds of his selected sites to note down archaeological evidence, if any, and examined the socio-cultural practices of people, in looking for traces of cultural impact of the alien settlers of the past. In this book, he has presented his findings in such a coordinated manner that they, on the whole, act as the corroborative evidence in support of his stated hypothesis. In this process, the author has discovered how South-eastern India was in contact with the great civilisations of the ancient world that flourished in West-Asia, Egypt, Mycenaean Greece, Mediterranean Islands, China and American continents. In this whole exercise, the author has discussed topics in relation to Kalinga, like 'the maritime-history', 'locations of the great ports of the past', `the maritime infrastructure' and 'the maritime trade-inputs received from outside' etc. with a multidisciplinary approach, though with due emphasis on the up-to-date textual and archaeological data on the subject. This innovative work, which is the result of many years of painstaking research, provides a picture of South India's prehistoric maritime links with the outside world, which so far have remained mostly unknown.
