(p.1) Chapter One Introduction
Prehistory and Archaeology of Northeast India

Manjil Hazarika

Oxford University Press

Most of the research on the prehistoric archaeology of the Northeast shows that many such research attempts are confined mainly to surface sites, and that excavated sites from the Neolithic and even the historical period are comparatively rare. It is now time to scrutinize the nature of the studies done so far on Northeast Indian archaeology and assess the historiography, together with the recent theoretical developments in the discipline. The area is a contact zone between the East and the West and will only be fully known when a complete picture emerges of its prehistoric cultural growth through sustained archaeological and interdisciplinary palaeoecological research. This chapter spells out the rationale behind the research, the problem, the working hypotheses, aim, objectives, and methodologies followed in the book.

Keywords:   Northeast India, prehistoric archaeology, historiography, archaeological research, prehistoric cultural growth, archaeological research problems, multidisciplinary methodologies
