This is the twenty-eighth issue of the Review containing report on archaeological activities
in various fields including certain spheres of interdisciplinary researches. Thanks to the Physical
Research Laboratory, Ahmadabad, and the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Bombay, we
have now been able to introduce a sub-section on the thermo luminescence dating. I hope these
institutions along with the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany, Lucknow, will continue to
devote their time and attention to the cause of archaeological research in India. It is a matter
of great satisfaction that the Deccan College Post-graduate and Research Institute, Pune, has
stepped forward for undertaking multidisciplinary archaeological investigations.
The manuscript for the Review for 1981-82 will shortly be sent to the press; it is hoped
that the issue will be printed off by the end of this year. Much of the time in compilation
can be saved if all the contributors follow the pattern systematized in the Review and use the
spelling of place-names as given in the maps of Survey of India.
Apart from the items relating to the activities of Archaeological Survey which have been
supplied by my colleagues in Headquarters, Circles and Branches, the material was received
as usual from various State Governments, Universities and other research organizations. I am
deeply beholden to all the contributors and apologize for any omissions and commissions that
might have occurred.
I express my sincere appreciation of the cooperation I received from H. Sarkar,j. S.
Nigam, K. P. Gupta, C. Dorje, S. R. Varma and Arundhati Banerji in the preparation and
publication of the present Review. My thanks are also due to Messrs Naba Mudran Private
Ltd., Calcutta for their close cooperation in printing this issue within a remarkable short time.
