The area covered comprises India, Bangladesh and Nepal, and the subjects covered are Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, Neolothic, Chalcolithic, rock art, Harappan Civilization, Historical archaeology, bronzes, ceramics, zooarchaeology and ethnoarchaeology. A volume of this kind is useful to all students of archaeology. It makes available to them the kind of research that has been carried out at the world famous Institute of Archaeology 'Deccan College '. It will serve as a guide for writing high quality thesis on various themes of archaeology. The book contains the nodal work of some of the most established scholars (Md.
