First printing. Spine creased, pages lightly toned. 1968 Mass Market Paperback. 365 pp. Uniquely isolated by mountains and oceans, the Indian sub-continent exhibits in its archaeology a fascinating variety within an overall unity. This comprehensive survey of the foundations of Indian culture has been written by two authors with first-hand experience of digging in India: in their later chapters they are able to draw new conclusions about ancient Indian patterns of settlement, agriculture and economy, technology, religion, and art, and these are based on the finds of the last century and a half, which are assembled (age by age and region by region) in the earlier chapter.
