It begins with the Pre historic and proto historic archaeology linked with maritime activities and ends with the suppression of an in human barbarous practice the Meriah Sacrifice. The main objective of this book however is to portray and preserve some of the lost and forgotten heritage and cultural aspects of Orissa to the posterity. Each essay in the present volume is represented as a unit in itself. All of the essays together should serve to provide some significant features of the Orissan history. The title of the present work Studies in the Heritage History and Archaeology of Orissa might imply treatment of every aspect of the Orissan history. But this not actually the case it is not possible too. In the present work an endeavour has been made to deal with some pertinent aspects of Orissa as reflected in heritage traditions history and archaeology keeping in view their relevance and importance. Interpretations in most of the essays are explorative in nature and sharply focused the theme on archaeological perspective. The approach made is not exactly presenting history as a compilation of given facts but something much more than that. The present work is a collection of articles most of which were written over a long span of time and published in scattered academic journals and proceedings and thus are not exactly products of a systematically designed research project on a particular theme or confining to specific time frame. They represent author's explorations and ideas on some less known and unexplored aspects of Orissa history. The methodology applied in the texts is interdisciplinary approach using modern tools of research although scientific historical interpretation is the dominating feature. This book will provide new insight to the scholars and readers working on different aspects of the history culture and archaeology of Orissa in particular and that of India in general. 344 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 70539
