 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The first publication of its kind, An Encyclopaedia of Indian Archaeology is a significant reference book on archaeology in India. It is in two volumes: the first volume is on subjects while the second volume is the gazetteer of explored and excavated sites in India. It is an authoritative and authentic work of permanent value and merit in which the Knowledge and expertise of Indian Archaeologists from the Archaeological Survey of India, universities and other institutes have been pooled together under the editorship of A. Ghosh, former Director-General of the Archaeological Survey of India.

The Encyclopaedia has been planned in an unorthodox manner: it is not a mere Alphabetical listing of entries with sketchy information on topics. Volume I, which deals with subjects, is divided into twenty chapters. Each chapter is further divided into sections and subsections containing independent and self-contained Essays on subjects. For example, in the chapter on Cultures, one can find detailed information on various Cultures in India; the chapter on Basis of Dating contains articles on archaeological dating, archaeomagnetic dating, 14c radio-carbon dating, Numismatic dating, paleographic and epigraphic dating, thermoluminiscent dating, etc. In fact, this Encyclopaedia is a compendium of Indian archaeology. For those interested in getting further information on the subject and for those interested in looking into the original sources and references, each entry also carries an exhaustive Bibliography which further adds to the utility of this work. The second volume is the Gazetteer. It contains basic data and information on all the explored and excavated sites in India along with references to published reports and/or notices on each.
