This annual Review, like its predecessors, incorporates matter on archaeological activities in the country during the year 1979-80. As usual, the matter has come from various sources and I gratefully acknowledge the cooperation of those whose contributions have been utilized here. Evident as it is, a vast mass of material had to be handled, sorted, compiled and edited, and in the course of this exercise a few inaccuracies may have crept in for which I must apologize. In the earlier issue of the Review, viz., 1978-79, the matter under Explorations and Excavations was presented in a different manner than that of the earlier issues. According to this new arrangement, two sub-sections-one for village-to-village surveys of antiquarian remains and the other for explorations and other problem-oriented surveys-were introduced. Likewise, a section under excavations had two sub-divisions: national projects and major excavations; and other excavations. This scheme of detailed classification may have its merits but the readers seem to face slight inconvenience in culling his facts, as he has to go through at least four sub- sections which deal with the activities in a particular State. Considering this we have reverted to the earlier arrangement of classifying the activities concerning explorations and excavations under each State.

Our hope to wipe out the arrears have not been fulfilled and I do not like to list out the problems besetting us in making the Indian Archaeology-A Review up-to-date. We, however, hope that with the cooperation of our contributors we will soon be able to remove all backlog. I take this opportunity of thanking my colleagues in the Survey, particularly those in the Publications Section, for the cooperation that has been extended in bringing out this issue.
