Overview

Filling a distinct gap in the reference literature of archaeology, this bibliography provides an introduction to the vast and varied literature produced by the practice of archaeology in the Indian subcontinent and Sri Lanka since the early 19th Century. The annotated entries are arranged geographically by contemporary political subdivisions, with now-vanished native states and jurisdictions from the days of the British Raj cross-referenced to the modern subdivision. Within each section, entries are arranged chronologically, permitting the user to trace the inception and development of archaeological field survey and investigation regionally.

Summarizing the contents of each title, the annotations place the titles within the broader context of South Asian archaeological scholarship. An appendix lists the major Pakistani, Sri Lankan, and Indian legislation regulating the conservation and preservation of archaeological sites and artifacts and the antiquities trade. The bibliography places emphasis on works in English or other Western languages that are located easily outside of South Asia.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Comprises an annotated bibliography of works selected to provide the researcher unfamiliar with this massive body of literature with a framework for investigation. Assembled by contemporary political unit of the subcontinent (India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka) rather than by physiographic region, with the exception of the Ganges Valley. Entries within each category are arranged in chronological order either by publication date or, in the case of conference proceedings, the year the conference was held. Coverage extends from the writings of James Prinsep in 1788 to the 1990s. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
