India an Archaeological History

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses some issues regarding the study of archaeology of the subcontinent. These issues cover geography, prehistory, settlement, agriculture, metallurgy, and trade and trade routes. It concludes that the journey from the subcontinent's palaeolithic beginnings to its early historic foundations is no doubt very varied, and, of course, very long; much of it can be seen only in patches.
