This annual publication was designed as a compendium of information about archaeological activities carried out by the Archaeological Survey of India, State Departments of Archaeology, Universities and other learned institutions during the particular financial year. Over the years it has grown not only in bulk but also in importance: additional sections bearing new things have been incorporated and new outlook and ideas are found permeating in different reports indicating winds of change in various spheres. Even one can notice changes in terminology and shift in emphasis. Though the general arrangement has been retained, new chapter or chapters have sometimes to be added or deleted. This issue, for instance, contains a chapter on 'Expedition outside India' not appearing since the issue 1977-78. In February 1982 a team of archaeologists from the Survey was deputed by the Government of India to Kampuchea to prepare a comprehensive project report on the preservation of the world-famous temple of Angkor Wat Chapter X of this issue deals in brief with this aspect.

From the issue of 1955-56 onwards a chapter on 'Architectural Survey of Temples' had been appearing. In order to incorporate the results of the survey of buildings by the Building Survey Project of the Archaeological Survey, the chapter-heading has been changed to 'Architectural Survey'.

This publication, as usual, is the work of several hands in that it is the combined efforts of contributors, compilers and others. Such a compilation quite naturally may suffer from errors and omissions for which I, on behalf of all concerned and on my own behalf, would like to tender my apology. However, I have no responsibility for the factual information, as these are supplied by the contributors who are themselves engaged in their respective pursuits.

In my responsibility as editor I have been ever conscious of the extent to which I depended on the labour and goodwill of others. For the publication of this issue I record my deep appreciation to: H. Sarkar, J. S. Nigam and Arundhati Banerji for compilation, editing and going through the proof; M. C. Joshi, K. M. Srivastava and B. S. Verma for assisting in editing some of the chapters; and S. R. Varma for production and going through the press.
