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.

Barrie, Ontario
I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.
Teresa, USA
Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
