About the book

The present book consists of nineteen Chapters on Ancient Indian History Culture and Archaeology. Keeping in mind the requirement of graduate and research students, I have tried my level best to gather facts from all sources including the published and unpublished works. The opening Chapter is on Sources of history without which it is impossible to say anything about the past. The second chapter is based on Indus Valley civilization and the beginning of the metal age.  In the third chapter the relation of history is made with the other social sciences. Fourth chapter deals with the period of Mahajanapadas which is followed by the Vedic civilization in the next chapter. Chapter seven and eight are based on Mauryan and Kushana Empires. Chapter ten describes the religious developments in ancient period. The Golden Age of History: The Gupta Age is described in chapter eleven. Vakatakas, Vardhan and Rajput periods are described in the preceding chapters. Chapter 15-19 are based on South Indian History in ancient period. The book is having 108 plates on various pictures followed by word index in the end.

The author has tried her level best to gather facts about ancient period from the works of renowned historians. Lot of help has been taken from online journals and publications. I hope the work will be useful for history seekers.
