India is not only culturally and materially prosperous but also rich in archeological wealth. The history of ancient India begins from Paleolithic ages and comes up to the modern age passing through the magnificent civilization which flourished in the valleys of rivers such as Sindhu and Saraswati. These civilizations were the locus of ancient urban civilizations of the world.
The ancient Indian civilization flourished due to its strength in terms of agriculture and technology. The base of these civilizations was also strengthened by its connections and trade with the other contemporary civilizations of the world. The Vedic era is considered to be an important period in the Ancient history of India which proved to be stepping stones for the succeeding periods. Our past is our cultural heritage, and how we choose to use this information for future generations is an important role for archeologists. Understanding patterns and changes in human behavior enhances our knowledge of the past.
This book Archeological Heritage of India brings together different dimensions of the different period of Indian history through 25 scholarly articles/essays. These essays are written by the noted scholars of various branches of Ancient Indian history such as Pre-History, Proto-History, Megalithic Culture, Archaeology, Art, Architecture and Epigraphy.
