Description

 

About the Book:

 

The aim of the fieldwork, on which this book is based, was to explore the possibility of conducting archaeological excavations in Surat where the Europeans including the British were most likely to have left behind the material traces of their presence between 16th and 18th centuries.

However, before undertaking such excavations, one should have an understanding of the historical framework within which the relevant archaeological issues can be contextualized. The purpose of this book is to put forward this framework and advance the general concept of 'the Archaeology of European Expansion' in South Asian Archaeology.

 

About the Author:

 

A University Lecturer since 1965, Dilip K. Chakrabarti currently lectures on South Asian Archaeology and Ancient History in the Department of Archaeology of Cambridge University. He has authored sixteen books and a large number of articles, notes and book reviews. His recent publications include Archaeology in the Third World: A History of Indian Archaeology Since 1947.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
