 DESCRIPTION
spacer
River Valleys have been the sites of the oldest human settlements and consequently the cradles of civilization as well as the repositories of the cultural milestone of the mankind. In India, rivers have played a predominant role in the temporal, cultural and spiritual life of the people through the ages. Several civilization and associated multi-cultures have evolved around them. Many of them have disappeared leaving trails behind them; others continue in fully and partly transformed forms. The present anthology of articles on the River Valley Cultures of India is a result of the seminar organised by Indira Gandhi Rshtriya Manav Sangrahalaya, Bhopal. It encompasses such diverse fields as hard rock geology, paleoenvironment, paleobiological sciences and traditional archaeology. Also studies are settlement patterns, site formation processes, tribal research, dating methods, ecological history of rivers, diverse riparian systems and their role in history and the biocultural diversity of India. The volume also addresses social problems facing man in the river valleys like disaster management and rehabilitation of communities settled along the banks of the rivers, and various other aspects, scientific or social, of the riparian systems. In the view of this multidisciplinary nature, this book will be useful to every student and researcher interested in these areas.
