From the preface: “This memoir is an account of the work of a British expedition which spent the Summer of 1938 in excavating a number of sites in the Swat Valley and in making an archaeological reconnaissance in the Oxus territories of Afghanistan. The expedition, a party of four, was supported by a number of learned societies in England, and the publication of this volume by the Government of India as one of this series is due to the kindness of the Director-General of the Archaeological Survey, Rao Bahadur K.

Prompted by the substantial impact of nanoscience and nanotechnology on the diverse materials, metals and minerals being used by over six billion people on the disturbingly overcrowding, increasingly mobile and energy guzzling planet, the author has attempted to produce a readable and comprehensive outline of the physics, chemistry, biology and engineering dimensions and processes relating to the exploitation of various kinds of materials, nanomaterials and nanoparticles, with special reference to carbon-based and silicon-based materials. The study introduces the reader to novel, superfunctional and composite materials, metamaterials, electronics, electrets, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, molecular transistors, and graphene currently attracting research focus.
Besides its overall utility for all scientists and engineers,(less)

Index. "The Amaravati Sculptures are famous throughout the world for their special features and they form a distinct school of art called Amaravati School of Art.
Though Amaravati art pieces take the pride of place in India's best museums, the sculptures in the site museum at Amaravati itself have not been assigned enough significance. This volume lists and analyses the museum antiquities typologically and chronologically.
The effort includes all the museum antiquities, including many objects of seemingly minor importance,(less)
The region, being at the centre-stage for more than a millennium since the emergence of Buddhism and later during the period of Magadhan imperialism, has yielded rich treasure-trove of antiquities relating to historic period which have been freshly interpreted and re-assessed in this volume. It contains updated discussions on epigraphic and numismatic traditions of the region, art and architecture, paintings and folk arts and the centres of arts that emerged at Kausambi and Saranatha(less)

Bibliography. "Buddhism is a name given comparatively recently by western scholars to the message given by Gautama who became the Buddha.
The teaching of Buddha were known as dharma. It comprises a search for the native of human existence together with a firm commitment to a release from the riddle of suffering associated with it.
Therefore it appears to be ingrained in a kind of soteriology. The Buddha found solution to both the issues conceired and(less)

Goswamy: "In perfect awareness of the fact that museums have, across time, never truly been a part of Indian life, there has always been some discussion of whether there are, or can be, museums in India that yield a different 'experience', what we call here an anubhuti, to the viewer. The matter came up again, in the course of the recent workshop on museum practice held at the Sanskriti premises in Delhi.
Dashrath Patel was making a slide presentation on 'Indian design', showing wonderful photographs taken in bazaar and country side of ordinary objects, rather arrangements of objects: dyed textiles spread out to dry in dazzling array on the sandy banks of the Sabarmati, delicacies displayed in rising rows of colours and shapes in a sweets-shop, Vegetables neatly stacked in seeming awareness of mutual relationships on a vendor's cart, garlands of glass bangles glistening on a hawker's pole, elegant jali-windows(less)

From the Introduction: "The archaeology of India south to the Vindhayan range, the Deccan or Peninsular India has had certain distinctive features and that revealed a chronology of an Indian culture characteristically different from the prehistoric cultures of other parts of the country.
Though studies on the southern Neolithic was initiated in the first half of the nineteenth century our knowledge and concept about the civilization grow considerably during the decades since India's independence (settar and Korisettar, 2002).

From the Introduction: "Nagarjunakonda, the famous Buddhist site of Andhra Pradesh drew attention of the people in early twenties of the twentieth century and had been the point of attraction of the archaeologists, historians and pilgrims since then. The archaeological importance of the site was first brought to the notice by R.
Saraswati in 1926, after learning about interesting findings from the place by the local people. Explorations at different times had initially created an impression about the site as one Buddhist settlement that came up during the rule of the Ikshavakus.
But the large scale excavations, that commenced in 1954 and continued till 1960, subsequent to the decision of turning the valley into a reservoir(less)

But the archaeological excavations will be the only way of knowing whether the name of Kampil was Kampilya, as Cunningham maintained, or whether the identity was only temporary, as the authors believe, or alternatively whether Kampil had nothing in common with the ancient capital. In the meantime, despite the predictable difficulties (the present built-up area occupies a large part of the mound), there are sufficient reasons to carry on in-depth researches about the site.
The book brings together the indications obtained from Kampil, all the known information referring to the site and some hypotheses the authors have formulated. It is not possible to write about Kampil without widening the discussion(less)

From the introduction: "The Indus Valley has been known to be the centre of one of the earliest civilization of the world, ever since the discovery of Harappa and Mohenjodaro in 1921-22. Hardly any site of the Indus (Harappa) civilization was discovered within the present day Indian territory at the time of independence and partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947.
The Archaeological Survey of India took up the task of exploring regions, east of Indus Valley for finding out Harappan sites. The renewed excavation resulted in the discovery of at least forty Harappan sites in Saurashtra (in Gujarat), the most important among them being Lothal.
The word 'Lothal' in Gujarati formed(less)

"The images, it is believed, besides providing a medium between the devotee and his deity, serve other important functions interalia the understanding of the evolution of art 'a full range of human thought and activity including history and geography.' The sculptural remains in Eastern India, dating prior to the Pala period, are few by contrast to those of later centuries.
Even Lama Taranatha who popularised the concept of prevailing form of art in Eastern India, appears to have been aware of earlier art in this region. From the 8 century A.
D. onwards the regional spirit gradually got better of the Indian tradition in all spheres of life.
The kingdoms began to assert their identities in their respective boundaries. The local scripts and dialects began to develop in the succeeding centuries.
This is also true of Indian art and in Bengal a new idiom of expression evolved(less)
