Description
About the Book

The European Association for South Asian Archaeology and Art (EASAA) has been the principal European forum in its field since its foundation in 1970.

Its aim is to bring together and forge links between scholars from around the world working in the disciplines of South Asian archaeology, art history, architecture and heritage for a biannual conference, following which proceedings are published. The EASAA was originally called the Association of South Asian Archaeologists in Western Europe but in 1993 became the European Association of South Asian Archaeologists. Its present name, the European Association for South Asian Archaeology and Art, was adopted in 2010 in recognition of a concern for the history of art and architecture apparent from the start. Its members are those who have attended at least one conference. They now number around three hundred, from Europe, South Asia and throughout the world.

Preface

From June 3o to July s, 2014 one hundred researchers, curators, and PhD students from twenty nations and three continents met in Stockholm, Sweden for discussions and .change of ideas during the 22nd conference of the European Association for South Asian Archaeology and Art (EASAA).

The National Museums of World Culture (NMWC) hosted the conference that was held at the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities (MFEA). We would . to express our gratitude to NMWC for agreeing to host the conference, to the Museum Director (2013-2015) Michel D. Lee for his warm welcome speech, and to the staff at MFEA for the practical arrangements that made the Museum a hospitable and inspiring venue for the conference. Our heartfelt thanks also go to Professor Dr Phil. Kristian Kristiansen, archaeology, Department of Historic. Studies, University of Gothenburg and to the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities for financially supporting EASAA 22, allowing us to sponsor the participation of some South Asian guests.

It is a long way from the Indian Subcontinent to Sweden in the north-western periphery of Eurasia. Thus, we were very happy that Professor emerita Romila Thapar, despite of the distance, accepted our invitation to travel to Stockholm to deliver the opening address. Based on textual sources she remined us, amongst other things, that people in ancient societies also represented, reflected over and used their own past in their own present time - a perspective that is equally relevant whether one studies literary works, inscriptions, objects, built environments or production landscapes.

As stated in the homepage of the EASAA, the association has been the principal European forum in Its field since its foundation in 1970. Its aim is to bring together and forge links between scholars from around the world working in the disciplines of South Asian archaeology, art history, architecture and heritage for a biannual conference, following which proceedings are published. The publication of research papers is essential for the wider communication of results and their critical evaluation.

With the peer-reviewed Proceeding's aim of communication in mind, a few editorial remarks should be added. Before the final editing in 2019, the authors have had the possibility to update their references and bibliographies from 2015 when it was found necessary in order to keep the scholarly relevance of the papers. Further, we were happy to include a paper which was born out of a discussion about Harappan signs during the conference. Professor Asko Parpola's paper 'Inscriptions Incised on Harappan Ivory/Bone Rods and The, Parallels Among Other Types, of Inscribed , forms a comment and answer to specific questions raised in the paper concerning Harappan signs on ivory rods presented during the conference by Heidi Miller inclusion in the volume thus gives an added value to readers who were not present during the discussion.

We wish to thank the senior lecturer in Comparative Indo-European Linguistics Dr PhiL Christiane Schaefer, Uppsala University, for her support at the start of the publishing process. Finally, we wish to express our gratitude to Dr PhiL Heinz Werner Wessel, professor of Indology and the Indoiranska stiftelsen (Indo-Iranian Foundation) at the Department of Linguistics and Philology, Uppsala University and to the NMWC for the financial support to publish this volume. A heartfelt thanks also to Mr Pankaj D. and the staff of D. Publishers & Distributors in New Delhi for their patience during the editing process.
