Description
Foreword

Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) completed its centenary in 1961. A number of events were organized to mark the occasion; singularly important for the cultural history of modern India. An important segment of the centenary celebrations was an exhibition highlighting the major archaeological discoveries accomplished by ASI in its first 100 years of existence. The exhibition generated tremendous enthusiasm among the viewers.

In its 150th year of existence, it is important for the organization to look back and take stock of what it had been able to achieve in terms of explorations and excavations conducted all over the country. Admittedly, the last 50 years witnessed some of the most significant archaeological discoveries. One can think of Dholavira in Gujarat, Bhimbetka in Madhya Pradesh, Sanghol in Punjab and Sannati-Kanaganahalli in Karnataka. There are many more such important explorations and excavations. Needless to say, ASI's initiatives have substantially expanded the horizon of archaeological studies and research.

It was increasingly being felt that we should make a serious attempt at presenting these discoveries to the people of India. Any such exhibition is fraught with several problems - selection of material, availability of space, priorities and preferences of selectors, to name a few. Given this limitation, we have tried to showcase what we consider to be important discoveries. In the process, we seek to rediscover India and share the excitement with everyone.
