I am happy to place before the scholars and readers, Indian Archaeology 1992-93 - A Review. The publication of the Review has been somewhat in arrears. With the coming out of this issue, the gap has been reduced further. Efforts are being made to clear the arrears by the end of the next financial year. The main reason for the delay in bringing out the issues is the ,late receipt of material from various contributors. If the contributors send us the matter well in time, it would be possible for us to bring out the Review regularly. I request the contributors particularly my colleagues in the Survey, Departments of Archaeology and Museums; Museums; Universities and other research institutions to send us the material immediately after the closing of the current financial year, keeping in view the style and format of the previous Reviews. This would help in clearing the backlog of this publication.

The information contained in this issue covers the multifarious range of activities in different fields of archaeology in India, including reports on epigraphically discoveries, development of museums, radiocarbon dates, architectural survey of secular and religious buildings, structural conservation and chemical preservation of centrally protected monuments and sites and museum objects, etc. Out of several excavations carried out in the country during the period under review, I may specially mention here the important ones undertaken by the Survey at Shri Shri Suryapahar, District Goal para in Assam; Kolhua, District Muzaffarpur in Bihar; Lalkot in Delhi; St. Augustine Church in Goa; Data agar, District Shimla in Himachal Pradesh; Hampi, District Bellary in Kama taka; Bhawar and Kachargarh, District Bhandara and Pachkheri, District agpur in Maharashtra; Pynthorlangte in, District Jaintia Hills in Meghalaya; Barbate Fort, District Cuttack in Orissa; Sravasti, District Bahraich and Samath, District Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, State Departments of Archaeology and museums and other research institutions also carried out excavations at Garapadu, District Guntur, Gopalapatnam and Thotlakonda, District Vishakhapatnam and Nela Kondapally, District Khammam in Andhra Pradesh; Maner, District Patna in Bihar; Moti Pipli, District Banaskantha and Rojdi, District Rajkot in Gujarat; Balu, District Kaithal in Haryana; Talkad, District Mysore in Kamataka; Bhagimahari, District Nagpur in Maharashtra; and Jainal Naula, District Almora and Imlidih Khurd, District Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh.

The Survey continued to carry out major works of structural conservation and chemical preservation at Angkor Vat in Cambodia under a bilateral agreement.

I take the responsibility for omissions, if any, and other inaccuracy, which may have crept in orting out, compiling and editing the material for this issue. However, the responsibility for the information public had in the Review is that of the contributors.
