Displaying India‚€™s Heritage: Archaeology and the Museum Movement in Colonial India by Madhuparna Roychowdhury : Rs795 ISBN: 9789352872633

Displaying India‚€™s Heritage describes the history of museum-making in the Indian subcontinent in the 1800s and 1900s with special emphasis on the experience of Bengal. It details the connection between the museum movement and the broader political and cultural environment of the time.

The central discussion focuses on the colonial Indian Museum in Calcutta, which began as a natural history collection and soon became a repository of archaeological artefacts from across the subcontinent. The emerging contest between imperialism and nationalism shaped the visualisation in the display boxes here. In describing this history, the book also highlights the complex relationship between knowledge and power.

During the period of high nationalism, when regional histories‚€”often blended with mythical narratives‚€”became popular, scientific history writing placed an emphasis on archaeological knowledge. Local museums began asserting their right over excavated artefacts and princely states presented the pre-eminent position of their families through palace museums; through these histories of provincial and local museums, the book shows how museum-making was intimately tied to competing political loyalties and identities. It presents a convincing case to consider museums as a modern public sphere where the territorial and cultural bases of nationhood were negotiated.

Issuing from strong archival research, Displaying India‚€™s Heritage draws a connection between the ‚€˜culture of history‚€™‚€”constituted by the knowledge of history and the historical imagination of people‚€”and a series of individual endeavours in history-writing, collecting and museum-building. This volume will interest students of modern Indian cultural history, museology, archaeology and cultural studies.

Delhi: Ancient History by Upinder Singh (Ed.) : Rs220 ISBN: 9788187358299

NOT MANY people know that the busy and bustling capital city of Delhi and its surroundings have a long past, going back thousands of years. Prehistoric stone tools have surfaced here and many ancient remains have been found, sometimes accidentally by farmers tilling their fields, and at other times by archaeologists carrying out systematic excavations. A mound one passes everyday or a narrow strip of stream tells a story of ancient times. Centuries of history coexist with metro stations and plush cars. The readings in this book give us glimpses of the lives of people who lived in the Delhi area over the centuries, and how these details have been pieced together by historians. It brings into focus the importance of the historian‚€™s method and the sources of information found in ancient texts, archaeology and even legends and folklore, sometimes hanging on the thread of a slender historical fact. The editor of the volume, points to the urgency of further exploration and documentation to fill in the still all-too-meagre details of Delhi‚€™s ancient history. However, she ends on a note of caution, bordering on alarm, when she points out that invaluable evidence of the city‚€™s past is being extensively destroyed due to quarrying and the construction of new roads and buildings. Such activities are an integral part of the modernization of a living city but the balance between modernization and the preservation of ancient remains is indeed very fragile and needs to be maintained from an informed and realistic perspective. This collection of essays has been put together by a teacher for students of history, but will also be of enormous value to a large number of other interested readers.

Discovery of Ancient India, The: Early Archaeologists and the Beginnings of Archaeology by Upinder Singh : Rs695 ISBN: 9788178241272

This book is written as much for the general reader interested in India's antiquity and its pioneering archaeologists, as for students of the history of archaeology, colonialism, and constructions of the past. It breaks colonial archaeology down into its specific constituents and examines the ideas, impulses, tensions, and individual contributions that comprised early studies of India's ancient past. It focuses, at the outset, on the ideas and work of Alexander Cunningham, the first Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, as well as his assistants. It then looks at a number of related issues-the different definitions of archaeological research; the conflict between field archaeologists and architectural scholars; the debate over whether antiquities should be left in situ or removed to museums; the different approaches and initiatives towards the conservation of historical monuments. Finally, it looks at the contributions of Indian scholars to archaeology, and at the Indian princes vis-a-vis the conservation of historical monuments.

Studying Early India - Archaeology, Texts, and Historical Issues by Brajadulal Chattopadhyaya : Rs595 ISBN: 9788178241432

This book comprises a set of interrrelated essays on some of the key issues which continue to excite historians and scholars of early India. It shows the profound impact of colonialism on the study of India's early past, the new methods and premises introduced into India by colonial studies, and the variety of departures from traditional, pre-colonial modes of history-writing. It goes on to show that post-Independence historiography has brough a fresh set of problems to the fore: such as the integration of archaeology with narratives of early Indian history; of the trajectories of social change and social formation; of the historical position of ideology and its shifts; and of the ways of communicating knowledge of a past which is now increasingly under non-academic fundamentalist onslaughts. With its diverse parts connected by strong threads of interest in the changing nature of history-writing on early India, this new book on the methodological changes that confront the historian of pre-colonial India will consolidate Professor Chattopadhyaya's reputation as one of the foremost thinkers in his area of ancient and early medieval history.

Ayodhya: Archaeology After Demolition (Rev. Edn.) by D.Mandal : Rs210 ISBN: 9788125023449

Archaeology has become implicated in the Ayodhya controversy. It has been claimed that archaeological evidence provides irrefutable proof of the existence of a Rama Temple at the site of Babri Masjid, and of the destruction of this temple by Babur. The author uses standard archaeological procedures to question the claim. He examines the structural and artefactual evidence and analyses the stratigraphic information of B. B. Lal‚€™s excavations. Exploring possible alternative interpretations of the available data, he concludes that there was no temple of stone or brick lying below the mosque, and that there is no evidence of any act of destruction. The book is a defence of archaeology against its political misuse. A cautious examination of the archaeological evidence reveals a great deal about the working of communal politics. The archaeological discoveries which are supposed to prove the demolition of a Rama temple by Babur actually show no more than the logic of a politics which destroyed the Babri Masjid on 6 December 1992.
