I all happy to place before the scholars the Indian Archaeology J987-88-A Review not very long after the publication of the previous issue. We are making efforts to bring the publication of the Review lip to date; this, however, would depend on timely submission of material by contributors. It has been our experience that; in many cases, several reminders have to be given for sending material to us for inclusion in the Review which results in delay of its publication. I am sure, with the cooperation of different institutions and the State Departments of Archaeology and Museums and my own colleagues in different Branches and Circles of the Survey it would be possible for us to maintain regularity of its publication.

The present issue of the Review is more voluminous than the previous ones and thus reflects also increased activities in different fields of archaeology. Out of several excavations reported in this issue, I may mention the work at Banawali, Thanesar, Sanghol, Hampi, Sannathi, Daulatabad, Lalitagiri, Udaigiri, Fatehpur Sikri, Sravasti, Balikeshwar, Chandel, Harsud, etc. by the Survey, at Kuntasijointly -by the Deccan College, Pune, and the Gujarat State Department of Archaeology, at Mangalkot by the University of Calcutta, at Kotasurby the Visvabharati, Maiharby theAllahabad University, Ganeshwar by the Department of Archaeology and Museums, Rajasthan State and at Shikarpur by the Department of Archaeology, Government of Gujarat. It is perhaps not necessary to list the conservation works carried out by the Survey and the different State Departments throughout the length and breadth of the country. However, I may mention that the Survey continued to carry out the major work of structural conservation and chemical preservation of the Angkor Vat temple in Cambodia.

The Survey also established a museum at the Hazarduari Pa lace in Murshidabad, West Bengal, and the large number of objects in the collection were given detailed chemical treatment.

I am thankful to the Universities, State Governments and other institutions who have contributed to the Review. I must also express my thanks to my colleagues in the different Branches and Circles. The responsibility for the information published in the Review is that of the contributors.

Finally, I would like to place on record my grateful thanks to my colleagues, particularly to Shri B. M. Pande, Director (Publication) of the Head quarters office of the Survey and his devoted associates namely Shri C. Dorje, Superintending Archaeologist, Dr. Arundhati Banerji, Deputy Superintending Archaeologist, Shri C.Gupta, Production Officer and Shri K.P. Padhy and Shri A. Jha, Assistant Archaeologists who worked with efficiency and best of their ability constantly to bring out this volume. It would not have been possible to publish this issue of Indian Archaeology-A Review without their involvement under the guidance provided by Shri B.M. Pande. I would like to thank Sarvashri H.S. Miyan, Ramesh Dalal, S.N. Nautiyal and Rakesh Chander of the Drawing Section for making the illustrations press ready. I am also thankful to the staff members of the Publication Branch for their assistance in preparing and typing out the text matter.
