Panja, Sheena et al.

₹ 1900.00

The book is an archaeological study of the interaction between settlements and a dynamic alluvial environment of the Ganga in north Bengal, India, with special focus on the excavations at the site of Balupur. Eschewing the prevalent emphasis on the study of art and architecture, this work aims to bring back the `human' to the study of cultures during c.600-1800 CE through an understanding of the formation and changing character of past settlement. ;;
