Preface
I am happy to place before the readers Indian Archaeology J990-9J-A Review not long after the publication of the Review for the year 1989-90. We are deeply aware of the delay in their timely publication. This is primarily due to non-receipt of material from several contributors despite reminders. We hope that in future all contributing institutions/agencies including universities, State Departments of Archaeology and Museums, different museums who are having or have acquired archaeological material in their collection, and officers of the Survey send us required information so that it becomes possible to bring this important publication up to date. I am sure, with the cooperation of all, it should not be difficult to achieve the goal. I would also like to assure all that on our part we shall be trying our best to expedite the publication of their view. Needless to add, material for inclusion in the Review, if sent keeping in view its format and style would make our task easier and would help us in its expeditious publication.

The present issue of the Review contains, as usual, information about archaeological activities and investigations within the country besides the important work of conservation carried out by the Archaeological Survey of Lydia at Angkor Vat in Cambodia. While field work by way of explorations and excavations was carried out in different parts of the country, the important excavations carried out during the year which are included in the Review are: Buddhist remains at Kolhua (Bihar); major Harappa site at Dholavira (Gujarat); historical site at Harsh-ka- Tila, Thanesar (Haryana); mediaeval sites at Hampi and Gudnapur (Karnataka); early historical site at Adam (Maharashtra); early mediaeval fort at Barabati, Neolithic site at Golbai Sasan and Buddhist site of Lalitagiri (all in Orissa); Late Harappa site at Brass (Punjab); and Pallava remains at Mahabalipuram (Tamil Nadu), etc. Several new inscriptions, both in Sanskrit and Dravidic as well as in Arabic and Persian, found during the year are also included in the Review.

The matter for publication in this Review has been received, as usual, from diverse sources- the State Departments of Archaeology and Museums, Universities, research institutions and laboratories and various offices of the Survey. I gratefully acknowledge the cooperation that I have received from all of them.

I am sure, scholars and other interested readers would find in this Review much useful information as in the previous issues. I would also like to acknowledge my colleagues B.M. Pande, Director, Chhering Dorje, Superintending Archaeologist, Arundhati Banerji, Deputy Superintending Archaeologist, A. Jha, Assistant Archaeologist and other staff in the Publication Section of the Survey for their efforts in bringing out this work.
