In the process of clearing the backlog of publications of the Archaeological Survey of
India, I am happy to place before the readers and scholars, Indian Archaeology 1985-86-
A Review. Like its earlier issues, it incorporates matter on archaeological activities in the
country during 1985-86 besides a summary of results of excavations at Hamad Town,
Bahrain, where a team of archaeological experts of Archaeological Survey of India carried
out excavations at the invitation of Government of Bahrain. The succeeding issues of the
Review are also under preparation.
However, I would like to add that since 1989 to June 1990, Archaeological Survey of
India has been hectically engaged in bringing out besides the present issue of Indian Archaeology 1985-86-A Review, Temples of the Pratihara Period in Central India, Temples of
Khajuraho Vol. I & II, Excavations at Surkotada, Epigraphia Indica Vol.41 and Gupta
Inscriptions of Bagh Caves.
As usual for this issue of Indian Archaeology the matter was received from various
sources and I gratefully acknowledge the cooperation of those whose contributions have been
utilised here. The delay in the publication of this issue is regretted and I apologise for any
inaccuracy which may have crept in sorting out, compiling and editing the material for this
issue. However, the Archaeological Survey of India or I have no responsibility for factual
information which is supplied by the contributors.
I take this opportunity to acknowledge with thanks the assistance and also express my
sincere appreciations for the work done by Sarvashri K.N. Dikshit, Director (Publication),
Chhering Dorje, Superintending Archaeologist, Smt. Shubra Pramanik, Deputy Superintending Archaeologist, K.P. Padhy, Senior Technical Assistant and J.E. Gupta, Production Officer
in the Publication Branch of the Archaeological Survey of India who have seen the issue
through its editing and publication. Ms. V AP Enterprises, New Delhi, deserve appreciation
for publishing this issue.
