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.
